“I have been inspired by Dr. Nawal Saadawi’s ideas who is one of the brilliant activists of Egypt, she writes about Feminism and women’s rights in the society. She was the reason that I started studying in Jinology in Rojava University, and I’m currently studying there. The field I’m studying in is not so familiar with most people, but I’m very proud that I study there.
Jinology college is a new concept and is formed from Abdulla Ojalan’s ideas. We have a lot of activists that fight for women’s right in Rojawa. It is really difficult to study in a field that a lot of people are nor informed about. Many students just want to study medicine or engineering or something more obvious, but the field of study I have chosen is not familiar to the society. Even a lot of my friends and family didn’t like my decision, but I was adamant about my choice and I want to be an activist in the future.”
