Loujain is of Palestinian origin and lives in Maryland, adjacent to Washington, and she decided to dedicate her spare time during the closure phase that the United States knew to confront the Corona epidemic, to teach Palestinian refugee children in Jordan the English language.

“We were sitting at home and I felt like I wanted to help people or make an impact, I was just thinking, ‘What can I do to help people in general? What do I have?'” Lujain told the magazine.

Lujain began helping refugees by learning the language, and decided to allocate entire hours to indoctrinate Palestinian refugees in Jordan, where her parents lived before immigrating to the United States.
She designed her own curriculum and lesson plans, she said, calling her “Sparkle” and set out to teach Palestinian girls aged 9-10.
