“My name is Roshn, I’m 19-years-old and I’m from Qamishli. I work in the field of child training and psychological support in an organization dedicated to the rights of children and women. I was 12-years-old when I first started this job. My mother and I were the founders of the organization. I did a project to support children’s mental health during war. Four autistic children received treatment and their conditions improved through the program I prepared, in addition to several other children who recovered. I currently hold meetings and training courses to raise women’s awareness. And I teach courses at the camp that houses families of Islamic State (ISIS) members where we are working to counter the extremist ideology of the ISIS women through the awareness sessions. I’m proud of myself for having done so much humanitarian work. According to the autonomous administration’s statistics, I’m the youngest volunteer in the humanitarian field at the regional level”.
