Palestinian students in Israel 

Our Palestinian students in Israel are usually girls, strongly motivated and very intelligent. They are studying at universities and higher vocational education in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem and Beer Sheva.

Growing up as a Palestinian girl in Israel means you don,t have Hebrew as mother language and the language of education, but Arabic. Belonging to a minority in a country it is difficult to acquire an equivalent position. For girls it is extra difficult, the Palestinian culture is still conservative regarding to their possibilities to move outside of the family.
