Stuff About Me:

Hi everyone!

Thank you for taking a moment to have a look at my profile. I'm a 20 year old English Education student. I have taught English since the age of 13. I started by teaching my classmates and relatives. When I was 14, I was selected by the United Nation's UNRWA for representing the Gazan children in a visit to the United States, where I also practiced interpreting. At the age of 15 I got my first full-time official job as a translator; it was only a summer job but I continued to tutor throughout the school years. I recently left one of the "most prestigious" English centers in Gaza because of their maltreatment towards their employees and even students. I decided to turn that bad experience into a good one by creating a school whose goal is mainly educational, not business. 

As for my story, I lost my dad at the age of 17. I now live with my mom, four sisters and my little brother. My older sister, 24, is our main supporter but I still have to work to help out. I try to cover my own expenses like tuition and transportation, and I help with the house expenses. Ever since my dad passed away 3 years ago, we had to sell our house and since have changed multiple rented apartments, sometimes even in a different city. I hope to be able to buy my mom a house one day, and give my younger siblings stability and whatever else they need.
