Hana is very active in women’s rights initiatives and women business groups in both Jordan and UAE and is an activist against Article 308 of the Jordanian Penal Code (to end the exemption from prosecution for persons accused of rape who agree to marry their victims for at least five years) and violence against women.

A team member in the Jordanian Basketball National Team and different sports club for over xx years, she learned how to cooperate well with others, taking responsibility for actions and accepting other cultures.

Hana’s special interest revolves around women’s rights especially in the Arab world. Hana’s plan is to spread the knowledge of legal rights amongst women from all backgrounds and to empower them to speak up and fight for their rights and to stop violence in all manners
