Doa Ali: A New Perspective

IMG_5997The importance of recognizing the truth, is the reason behind her commitment to journalism, says Doa Ali, managing editor of the online magazine, 7iber, in Amman, Jordan.

Covering issues of Palestinians living in Jordan has taught her to look at the Palestinian narrative in new ways. While interviewing the famous boxer Ihab Darwish from Baqaa refugee camp, she discovered that he was among the minority of Palestinian refugees in Jordan who didn’t have citizenship. Darwich was playing big matches for the Jordan boxing team, but when it came to participating in international championships, he was denied access as either a Jordanian or a Palestinian. Doa realized that the narrative is a bit different, but that Palestinians living abroad also face many challenges and have important perspectives. This experience has made her realize that she had many new things to learn and report about the Palestinian story.
