Art is a necessity of life for me; it helped me through my childhood and adolescence to express myself. As an art teacher to children, teenagers and adults, I noticed how art helped them to release the stress and negativity inside them as they were comfortable and expressing themselves in a better way. I also worked with special needs children for few months, which made me determined, I want to help people through art, I want to be an art therapist, it is what I was born to be.
Within the past few years cancer and autism cases increased alarmingly in Jordan, and with the political circumstances surrounding our country the number of refugees trying to integrate into the society has soared suddenly. All those people need all the help they could get, and art therapy is essential in their cases. Plus the daily stress and negativity people face, which affects their personal lives and their output into the society. Therefore, I am dedicating my life to help as much people as I can through art, for seeing them happy and relaxed makes me pleased.
However, I need a degree to be able to work as art therapist, and I have an offer from two universities in UK, but I can't find a full scholarship to fund my study, and I can't possibly fund it on my own. So I'm asking you to invest in me, to help those in need.
