I am a passionate Palestinian writer who was born in Ramallah, Palestine, on June 5th 1987. I received my education in Latin Patriarchate School – Birzeit, Palestine, and then completed my high school in Brighton High School, Boston, and the UAE afterwards. I got my Bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications Engineering from UAEU (United Arab Emirates University).

Being a passionate writer who writes about women, Palestine, humanity and equality, I was focused on writing and totally let go of engineering, I have published many articles (in Arabic and English) in different magazines and newspapers across Palestine, the U.S and the UAE.

I published my first book in 2015: “Scattered Papers” – Awraq Manthoura in Arabic.

I won the 1st place award in the UAEU Short Story Writing Competition 2006/2007 for my short story “Gone… and never came back”. (less)
