I was lucky enough to get connected with Shrooq through an Instagram friend, and she’s welcomed me into her city of Mukalla with nothing but open arms. It’s been fascinating to hear about life in Yemen from her perspective as a female, which actually has its benefits during the current situation.
Shrooq is a young entrepreneur who is fighting for equal rights between men and women. She’s rebellious in the sense of showing her face in public, because 99% of females in her culture cover themselves from head to toe.
Her and her friends started an activist club which revives local culture in their city for the youth, and it’s amazing to see the impacts they’re having on society, despite the rough times that they’ve been through.
In today’s video, join me as I take you inside the captivating life of Shrooq. Share this if you feel inspired!
