Recently, I was in a meeting with a foreign diplomat that wanted to hear about the problems that young people in Gaza face, and hear our suggestions for how the international community can lend a helping hand. We were a group of seven young people with different professions and backgrounds. Towards the end of the 1.5 hour discussion, which touched on topics that ranged from problems that resulted from the Hamas-Fateh division to the lack of sport facilities in Gaza, a particularly quiet young lady in the group decided to speak out.
