I am passionate aboutHanin Hazeem is an interior designer and graduate of the American University
of Sharjah. She is a co-founder and designer of an Art & Design company
called JuxtaPiece based in Sharjah. She has been a One Young World
Ambasasdor since 2013, having attended the 2013 Johannesburg and 2014 Dublin
Summits. With the help of the Leadership Program at AUS, Hanin organised the
first ever 'OYW MENA Caucus' held in the region in June 2015 with more than
200 local and international attendees in Sharjah. She is a Jordanian citizen
with Palestinian roots.
ActionsThe MENA region is full of aspiring youth with spectacular ideas and sense of
responsibility. However, the escalating environmental, political and
humanitarian challenges, they end up driven away from their full potentials.
Me as a Jordanian with Palestinian routes who was born in the UAE since 1994,
I got the chance to interact with a lot of people with different perspectives
and points of views. I studied with students from all over the world with
more than 80 nationalities, which gave me the opportunity to develop a skill
of acceptance of everyone. I would like to be the coordinating ambassador not
only because it has been my dream since I attended my first summit in Joburg
2013 but because I know that I can represent the youth of the MENA region and
help training them to be the role models of the whole world.
I am a designer with high skills of analytical thinking that helps in
questioning everything with minimal biases. I used to be a very shy child
with minimal desire of communication with people. However, I trained myself
to get out of my comfort zone into the real world that needs interaction and
expression of opinion. Although I have been very busy studying and working
during my university life, I managed to be the representative of the interior
design department, win the active student award at AUS three times in a row,
be a team leader at the leadership program at AUS, start the extensive
research of my own business and graduate with a cumlaude. Multitasking in one
of the skills that I have been developing since high school and it has been
rewarding until now! Moreover, I enjoy talking to people and arranging events
that have a purpose. I always say that if I wasn’t a designer, I would’ve
loved to be in the public relations or mass communication fields.
