Nihal Salmon Dentistry

Video filmed at IBDAA in Dheisheh November 2014

Nihal is in the second year of a five year course in Dentistry. The course is available at Al Quds University but not Bethlehem. Nihal chose dentistry because her view is that this offers more career options for girls than medicine.

Nihal plans to open a dentistry clinic in Dheisheh because currently there isnt one. 

Nihal thinks more girls applied for our scholarship than boys because, boys have more freedom and opportunities, including being able to earn money to support their studies.

The day before we held the video conversations the univeristy shut early because of trouble in Jerusalem. This meant that checkpoints were closed and students spent a long time getting home.
