I AM FINISHING A BA IN INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS. I CONSIDER MYSELF AN IDEALIST AND A DREAMER. AT FIRST I THOUGHT IN INTERNATIONAL POLITICS JUST FOR TRAVELING BUT, SOME TIME AGO I ASKED MYSELF IF THIS ATTITUDE WAS GOOD, BAD, OR SO ON. NOW I AM STARTING A BIOTECHNOLOGY CAREER AND DECIDED TO USE MY KNOWLEDGE ON BEHALF OF INTERNATIONAL AND LEGITIMATE MOVEMENTS WHICH MAKE ME FEEL ALIVE. SOMETIMES WE AS INDIVIDUALS WANT TO CHANGE ALL THINGS IN A MOMENT BUT UNFORTUNATELY IS NOT SO EASY AS IT SEEMS. I AM SURE THAT ITS UP TO EVERYONE OF US TO CHANGE THE WORLD FOR A BETTER FUTURE.
Why I want peace:
I THINK PEACE IS THE ONLY WAY HUMANKIND CAN ACHIEVE ITS FULL POTENTIAL AND BE FREE TO ADVANCE TOWARDS A MORE JUST AND EGALITARIAN WORLD.
Interests and activities:
READING, MUSIC (SAXOPHONE AND MANDOLIN), COLLECTING INSECTS, REPTILES, TEACHING, AND SO ON.
Something you didn't know about me:
I WILL FINISH THREE PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMS AT FOURTY (INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, COMPUTER SCIENCE, BIOTECHNOLOGY)

A True Story By Faisal Al-Hatib
I am a Palestinian Arab from Hizmeh, a village between Jerusalem and Ramallah. When I was 15 years old I fought against the Israeli Occupation in search of freedom. At that time I thought every Jewish person, whether soldier or citizen, man or woman, young or old, should be killed. I rejected the right for any Jew to live and every Jew was a target. I was just a kid, believe me, and I didn’t understand anything about politics or the Arab-Israeli conflict. I was arrested and sat in jail for 12 years. This was during the first intifada from 1987. At that time nobody talked about peace but only of violence. I matured during my time in jail. I started studying and reading books on politics, literature, poetry, and about the Madrid Conference.
It gave me hope to live in peace and dignity. I learned that violence only breeds violence and that peace is the only solution for the two nations, the only way for both to have a respectful and beautiful future. We live on the same land. We are neighbors. We drink the same water and both pray to a monotheistic God. We must live in peace on the basis of religion for God and land for everyone.
