Khouloud AlKhatib

President at Lebanese Organization For Unity & Defending Equal Rights (LOUDER)
Humans of Freedom Khouloud Picture

I have crafted my own identity that resembles my values of freedom and dignity. As part of the work with the Internal Security Forces (ISF), I get to make a change from within; a change that focuses on the rule of law, human rights and accountability. But the more questions I get about my ability to make a change, the more powerful I feel. The bigger the challenge, the bigger the role we can take. I am preparing my children to be human rights defenders themselves. I see this impact also through my students. I am someone who stands up for them and with them. I encourage them to be who they want to be, outside the confinements of society. With every challenge I take on, I prove that “yes I can, and yes I will!”
