Leila’s story

Leila, 43 is from the United States where she works as a fifth grade teacher in New York. Leila spent six weeks in Nablus in the summer of 2015 volunteering as an English and art teacher. Part Palestinian, Leila says “I strong connection to my father’s homeland, one that I deeply love very much.”

Her favourite thing about Nablus was the spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Now back home with family in the U.S., Leila is still working as a teacher and she would like to spend summer 2016 working with Syrian refugees in Turkey.
