You started your voluntary life in A-Hussein Youth Camps. How did this experience affect you?
Starting in the ninth grade, I started my journey with the Ministry of Youth camps, the first of which was a day camp that was established in Al-Shoubak in 2013, and it was organized by the Al-Shoubak Youth Center, and then I began successively to participate in the Al-Hussein camps for work and construction from 2014 to 2017, and I joined in 2014 with the “Haqq” initiative, one of the initiatives of the Crown Prince Foundation, in which I started a relatively long journey of youth work ending in 2019. These experiences opened the door for me to get to know a large number of Jordanians and to engage in a voluntary youth movement to serve local communities.
A qualitative leap from agricultural engineering to political work How did your political interests begin
I started studying at Shoubak University College, majoring in agricultural engineering, and I am now in the graduating year. Most of the stages of my volunteering and social activity have happened during the study period. The first real step of my political activity was the Parliamentary Fellowship Program with the King Abdullah Fund for the year 2019-2020, in which I worked with Several offices of Messrs. Representatives of the Eighteenth Council.
Tell us more about your journey in joining the Free Thought Forum
I decided to adopt a clear political approach that frames my endeavors to engage more in political activity, and then I realized that I had always leaned toward the liberal approach concerning the intersection of this approach with my belief in the civil state, the rule of law, citizenship, free economy, and equal opportunities, while I admit that I believe in the theory of the social market and the importance of providing The state has good education and health care for its citizens and that the capital is a servant of the state’s project and ensures well-being and a decent life for its citizens. After that, I officially joined the Free Thought Forum, which is a liberal Jordanian political association.
There is a misunderstanding of liberalism in our societies. How do you see the definition of liberalism from your point of view?
