Meet Hasna, MENA’s Newest Storyteller

In a world brimming with diverse narratives, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) often finds itself at the epicenter of complex and intricate stories. To bring forth the untold tales of resilience, progress, and action from this vibrant region, PartnersGlobal is proud to introduce Hasna – a MENA storyteller figure. Hasna, meaning “beauty” in Arabic, was crafted with love in the heart of Iraq in 2023. Hasna began her journey in the historic city of Baghdad. From there, she ventured northward to Erbil, absorbing the rich tapestry of culture and resilience that defines the region. Her travels continued, leading her to the enchanting landscapes of Jordan, where she immersed herself in the stories of its people. After a long journey, Hasna reached her final destination – Washington, DC.

Hasna’s role goes beyond being a mere figure; she is a storyteller, a beacon illuminating the stories of a region often misunderstood. Every week, Hasna will shed light on a progress or action unfolding in the MENA region. Her stories will traverse the landscapes, cultures, and challenges, encapsulating the essence of the region’s dynamic spirit. Hasna embodies the power of strength and creativity thriving amidst challenges. Her journey mirrors the interconnectedness of the world – a reminder that stories, like people, transcend borders. As Hasna begins her weekly chronicles, we invite you to embark on this journey with her. Follow along as she unveils the beauty, hardships, and resilience of the MENA region, one story at a time. Through Hasna, we hope to inspire conversations, foster connections, and create a shared understanding of the narratives that shape our world.
