Kristal fell in love with Palestine and its people on her first visit, years ago,
volunteering her time with the olive harvest. She returned several times after, met her husband and moved to Palestine to start a family. Kristal lives in between Jerusalem and Bethlehem, where she feels the reality of the Israeli segregation wall every day.

At the moment, Kristal is studying The Tour Guide Program at Bethlehem Bible College. This has inspired her to further explore the history, people, and heritage of Palestine and has also influenced her to create the podcast “Palestine Stories,” in which she delivers interviews and shares inspiring stories of Palestinians around her.

There isn’t a place around the world where Palestinians aren’t making a difference and inspiring people every day, but MOR would like to highlight some Canadian Palestinians, who we should all be proud of – they have gone beyond the ordinary to reach where they are today and are doing great things for their community and for Canada overall.
