Having grown up in an environment of conflict, Janna took it upon herself to inform people about the reality of where she has been living. Janna makes daily reports, in both Arabic and English, about daily life in Palestine as a child to her 628.000 Facebook followers. She was declared the youngest journalist in Palestine and was accredited and given a report card by the authorities. Janna’s journalism has led her to speak in front of world leaders at conferences across the world. She has also partnered with other organisations to participate in their campaigns about child prisoners and writing for rights. Three documentaries have been made about Janna and her efforts to document life in Palestine.
