Palestinian peace activist Mahmoud Jabari grew up surrounded by the consequences of conflict. He tells his personal story and explains how enabling kids with the tools of journalism can lead to peace.

Mahmoud Jabari is a youth activist and advocate for peace and cross-cultural dialogue, and a Youth Ambassador for the Children of Peace organization. He started his journalism activism at the age of 13 when he began his own magazine called "Peace Seeds." Mahmoud worked as a freelance photojournalist in the Southern West Bank city of Hebron where he risked his life covering news stories until March 2011. He has reported for World Youth News and Al-Jazeera Talk. Many of his opinion articles where published in Harry's Place blog, Children of Peace News Desk, and the Playa Wire.

Mahmoud served as an elected Youth Mayor of the city of Hebron (2005-2008), and led many social initiatives, including Journalists for Change, which introduces youth to new-media tools and encourages social involvement through media.

Mahmoud has attended numerous conferences, including the 2009 World Economic Forum on the Middle East, where he served as a youth voice to a number of world leaders. Last summer, he was invited by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs to meet with French journalists, bloggers and political figures to share his view of the future of the Middle East, and how youth can be involved.

Mahmoud is a public speaker and considers himself to be an Ambassador of Peace. He believes that youth from all cultures and nations are able to overcome political, religious and cultural borders, and become unified based their common dreams: to create the world in which they'd like future generations to live.
