Muntaha has been an active child from the age of just 6, when her talents were discovered by her mother. Muntaha participated in various activities about raising awareness on children’s rights. She often told children her age what their rights were and encouraged them to take action. Muntaha was honored by the Austrian Ambassador to Libya for her enthusiasm and participation in children’s rights and acknowledged by the Arab Ambassadors’ Association for Childhood for her active role in children’s society in Libya. Muntaha was motivated by the outbreak of the Libyan revolution, which led to the displacement of children and to violations of their rights. She took stand for children’s rights and encouraged others to do the same. She was a child rights activist in many local and international conferences and she had her very own radio program. In the future, Muntaha plans on becoming a social activist in children’s rights as well as a goodwill ambassador and representative of Libya.
