#chigagoGirl dedicates her life to taking on a dictator
"When she heard on the news that children in Syria were being tortured and killed by the regime, here current activities suddenly didn't feel so important to her anymore. Because of her Syrian roots, Ala'a feels deeply connected to the country and its people. She decided to dedicate her life to helping the people that wanted to bring down Bashar al-Assad and join the revolution. Through social media she's now helping the people on the ground take on a dictator."
