Enas Fares Ghannam*
Chosen as We Are Not Numbers (WANN) project manager in November 2021, Enas earned a bachelor’s degree in English education from Al-Azhar University and a diploma in translation from the Islamic University of Gaza. She is now WANN’s director and is currently close to completing a master’s degree in translation.
Enas is passionate about improving the lives of youth, especially in Gaza. She hopes to help others discover what she did when she first joined WANN — that she has many unknown abilities that can be cultivated and nurtured.
Enas says, “Because of WANN, I discovered my ability to write creatively, both fiction and nonfiction. In addition, WANN allowed me to get to know more about and analyze the world around me. It was my first step toward developing a better version of me.”
Hannah Ahle is a British Palestinian based in Manchester. She is a writer, illustrator, marathon runner and activist. She began writing as a teenager, and writing poetry came after establishing a yoga and meditation practice in 2012.
Writing and illustrating became a more prominent part of her daily life since the start of the pandemic. Her work is largely inspired by her life experiences and focuses on various aspects of the human condition, such as love, spirituality, empowerment, trauma healing, peace and freedom.
