With my BA in Gender Studies and my Masters in Philosophy, I thought I was adequately prepared to take on the world.

Growing up as a refugee in Gaza Strip-Palestine, I have lived, experienced, and witnessed the reality of the Gazan education system as a student in UNRWA and governmental schools. Coming from a family of teachers, I have grown up pondering every single day of my life how to improve the frequent, disappointing, on-going setbacks that I experienced both educationally and humanitarianly.

In 2000, I began working in the field of education. I joined a group of Afghan volunteer graduate students who were training teachers of refugees’ community-based schools in Iran. The teachers had not received any teacher training. However, they were young and motivated. That was my first, but exciting experience in education and opened the door to Afghanistan’s education problems, challenges, and issues.
