She first got involved in the Palestine Solidarity movement in 2009 as she entered the Faculty of Political Science during the 2009 Israeli aggression on Gaza. Moving to Egypt in 2012, she studied the Egyptian revolution for many years, following the Youth movements and political organisations on the ground. In 2015, in a context of generalized repression, she co-founded BDS Egypt, the largest political and social coalition for the defense of Palestinian rights in Egypt. Part of the global BDS movement, BDS Egypt calls for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel until the realization of Palestinians’ political rights.
As an organizer with BDS Egypt, she worked with her teammates to create a space uniting people from different political backgrounds, a space where they could develop their leadership and strategic skills and raise their voice despite the authoritarian context.
From July 2019 to January 2022, following the arrest of 2 members of the movement, including her husband, and her deportation from Egypt, she led the international campaign for their release.
