‘From my experience at Zajel, I learnt teaching techniques and the reliance of the human spirit and good bond between responsibility and passion’, I found my workshops to be fun, challenging, sometimes it felts pressured but I was motivated to follow the task required of me. The local volunteers were outstanding; they were more than helpful, outgoing, informative and approachable. I could not have managed without their aid, enthusiasm and understanding.
The visit to Hebron was shocking, surreal and inspirational. As for Boureen & Iraq Boureen these were saddening. The trip to Balata Refugee camp left me in awe, anger and apprehension of human spirit. The interviews we listened to were both inspiring and saddening. As for my thoughts on the Israeli occupied areas and settlements are that they are horrendous and infusive and displayed the banality of evil.
