Tala Halawa: Journalism LIfe Sentence


When the second Intifada started, Tala Halawa was sure that she would be a journalist. But her passion for telling stories started when she was still a child. In the 7th grade she was assigned to write a report for the local library magazine.  “I wrote a story about a waste disposal problem we were having in our neighborhood,” said Tala, “and it was published!”  Thirteen years later, she still loves covering stories and is now a broadcaster at 24FM, a radio station in the West Bank.

“You meet a lot of people, you talk to different people. It’s vibrant. I can’t see myself working something else…I will do this for life.”
