Biography

As a student in international relations, Alaa has always been interested in socio-political issues.

Convinced by the power of words, she gives importance to the power of public speaking as a means of sharing her story and representing strong ideals to fight against inequality and discrimination.

From the beginning of her university years, Alaa joined several associations that promote public speaking and intervened in Secondary II classes in Geneva to raise awareness and train young people in public speaking. Her time as a university student is marked by her participation in the SUN (Student’s united nations) as president during student debates simulating the United Nations General Assembly.
