She has lived in eight countries where she worked with non-governmental organizations and research institutions on human rights, gender and political analysis. In 2011, she actively participated in the uprising in Yemen, documented the events on her blog and co-founded SupportYemen, a storytelling collective. Her articles have been published in several international media. She is the co-author of Change Square, a photo book on Yemen’s revolution. In February 2020, she gave a TEDx talk at Berkeley University called “The Other Side of Yemen’s War.” She’s currently writing a novel set between Yemen and the U.S., along with a children’s book on resilience.
