I am honored to have been accepted into the Teach For Lebanon fellowship, for it is an extraordinary experience that has made grow in countless ways. Not only have I become aware of the great gap found within the educational system in Lebanon, but also have also become alert to the neglect and suffering of many children within our region. One cannot know what deprivation means, until you experience it firsthand. I have decided to stay in Lebanon, though I had a different life plan prepared for myself. I moved back from the United States, since I have mutual citizenship, but have decided to stay and work in Lebanon because I don’t think I could live with myself knowing of what is going on here, and not assist in promoting change. I have majored in Psychology because I am eager to understand people needs, and assist them in realizing their potential to help them reach their goals. The relationships that were formed between my students and I were not just that of a teacher; I was their teacher, caregiver, consultant and protector. This bond of mutual importance has made me stronger, has granted me solid grounds to build upon and has has also given me hope for my country. I believe that every child has the right to quality education. With the commitment, belief and dedication of TFL’s staff and Fellows, Lebanon one day will promote this privilege to every child in Lebanon.
