»I’m a Syrian journalist and co-founder of the Syrian Female Journalists Network (SFJN). I’m originally from Homs, Syria, but I have been living in Jordan since the end of 2012. As a media and gender trainer I am working with local female and male journalists by providing capacity building and writing skills training. My work focuses on breaking the stereotypes surrounding female journalists in the region, women’s rights, gender justice and the positive role of women during conflict, and how women are contributing to justice and peace.

The course at the Academy has given me the opportunity to discover myself again as a person and as a peace worker. The holistic programme and content is really something unique. Since my return to Jordan I’m trying to encourage my female friends to apply, as I believe women are still under-represented in the field of peace and conflict transformation. With the skills and knowledge that I and other female participants gained on the course, we can make a difference in our countries. I am grateful for this opportunity.«
