Meet a Volunteer: Saja

Saja

English Literature Student at An-Najah University, 21 – Palestine

I started volunteering with Project Hope because I was searching for an internship to broaden my horizon. Sometimes Nablus can be so small. Project Hope was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to show all the international volunteers the right idea, the correct image, of the Arab woman, who is like any other woman in any other country in the world.

The best thing about volunteering with Project Hope is that I meet many new people from many different countries, I get to learn about so many cultures. I have the opportunity to represent Palestine by being a good friend to them and showing them our culture, which maybe they wouldn’t understand just by walking in the street.

To me, Project Hope means Freedom. Democracy. Without Project Hope, I would not live. It’s difficult to live just for yourself. I like helping others.

After I finish volunteering, I want to work. I have many ambitions, but most of them are impossible in our situation. I would love to be a tourist guide. Project Hope provides me the opportunity to be a junior tourist guide, helping and being friends to people from other places, so I can live my dream in the present.
