The Magic of Dialogue

Haneen GanamHaneen Ganam has an enviable gift for languages. At a young age, she showed a proficiency for English, her third language, and taught herself to become fluent. Last year, Haneen graduated from the Department of English Literature and Communications with honors and is already on her way to an MA in English Language and Literature.
“Exploring the wonderful worlds of literary giants like James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf and Jane Austen inspires me,” confides Haneen. As part of her volunteer work, Haneen tutors English online. “Thanks to technology, I can help pupils all over Israel from my home in Fureidis, a village south of Haifa.”
Haneen is also extending her literary talents to the world of diplomacy. In her junior year, she joined the Haifa Model UN Society (Haifa MUN) Program, where she received the Outstanding Delegate Award during a MUN event in Munster, Germany. “Joining the program was one of the best things I ever did,” shares Haneen. “I learned about the world and met people from different cultures. I discovered a love for debate and improvisation, and experienced first-hand the power of dialogue in mediating long-standing differences.”

In recognition of her dedication and achievements, Haneen was appointed President of Haifa MUN.
