Born in Amman, Jordan to a poor but spirited family of Palestinian refugees, Afnan Ahmad Abdallah is an exceptionally gifted 15 year-old.
She knows four languages, and her brightness at school has won the admiration of her teachers and peers alike. She speaks about her life’s ambitions and dream to study at university, and to create greater understanding and support for her people.
This short video was directed by Afnan and completed for UNRWA’s (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) 2011 film competition for young Palestine refugees. Technical assistance and mentorship by Adam Shamash.
