When I turned 19, I started my career as the first female photojournalist in the Gaza Strip, Palestine.
My work, as a woman photographer, was considered a serious insult to local traditions,
and created a lasting stigma for me and my family
The male-dominated field made my presence unwelcome by all possible means
They made clear that a woman must not do a man's job
Photo agencies in Gaza refused to train me because of my gender
The "No" sign was pretty clear
Three of my colleagues went as far as to drive me to an open air strike area where the explosion sounds were the only thing I could hear
Dust was flying in the air, and the ground was shaking like a swing beneath me
I only realized we weren't there to document the event when the three of them got back into the armored Jeep and drove away
waving and laughing, leaving me behind in the open air strike zone
For a moment, I felt terrified, humiliated, and sorry for myself
My colleagues' action was not the only death threat I have received
but it was the most dangerous one
The perception of women's life in Gaza is passive
Until a recent time, a lot of women were not allowed to work or pursue education
At times of such doubled war including both social restrictions on women and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,
women's dark and bright stories were fading away
To men, women's stories were seen as inconsequential
I started paying closer attention to women's lives in Gaza
Because of my gender, I had access to worlds where my colleagues were forbidden
Beyond the obvious pain and struggle, there was a healthy dose of laughter and accomplishments
In front of a police compound in Gaza City during the first war in Gaza
an Israeli air raid managed to destroy the compound and break my nose
For a moment, all I saw was white, bright white, like these lights
I thought to myself I either got blind or I was in heaven
By the time I managed to open my eyes, I had documented this moment
Mohammed Khader, a Palestinian worker who spent two decades in Israel
as his retirement plan, he decided to build a four-floor house, only by the first field operation at his neighborhood,
the house was flattened to the ground
Nothing was left but the pigeons he raised and a jacuzzi, a bathtub that he got from Tel Aviv
Mohammed got the bathtub on the top of the rubble and started giving his kids an every morning bubble bath.
My work is not meant to hide the scars of war, but to show the full frame of unseen stories of Gaza's.
As a Palestinian female photographer,
the journey of struggle, survival and everyday life has inspired me to overcome the community taboo
and see a different side of war and its aftermath.
I became a witness with a choice: to run away or stand still.
Thank you.
