What did/do you most enjoy about life in York?
Actually a lot of things I enjoyed in York. It is beautiful city
which have many historical places to visit like The Minister. York
city is like small globe where it is possible to get to know people
from more than one country that experience can give you a real view
of other cultures and behaviours.

I want to combine my knowledge and interest with my passion to
help my people especially in mental health. Counseling and
psychotherapy can be helpful for most situations involving
psychological, emotional, relationship, parenting, family and
employment problems. Because we are living under occupation and
aggression, so many psychological problems appear among
Palestinians specially women and children. That it could be a
challenge to deal with this major problem.

The knowledge, skills and expertise that I benefit from York St.
John University master program will contribute greatly to my future
