A couple of days ago I downloaded the TED app and started searching for interesting videos on Islam and/or the Middle East. I easily found plenty: here are my favourites so far.
- Saudi Leila Hoteit teaches three lessons on success she’s learnt through hard work and admirable resilience in a sector, and country, where women really have it difficult.
- Sudanese-Australian Yassmin Abdel-Magied invites to go beyond initial perceptions when looking at a woman who covers her head.
- Afghani Sakena Yacoobi retells how she turned Talibans into teachers (plus, she has the cutest accent!).
Happy watching 🙂
