3. Blog for YaLa Press: In a region where media is too often a tool for nationalism, division and fear, YaLa Press allows young people in the Middle East to express personal experiences, unique stories and complex realities on themes such as coexistence, identity, gender equality and much more! If you are interested in contributing a blog/photo-essay/video, please send an email to sarahp@yalayl.org.
