Ismail Siam, 24

Gaza Camp Fitness Center, Jerash

Ismail heads the Gaza Camp Fitness Center, located in the Gaza Refugee Camp outside Jerash.

The center empowers young men and women by building confidence, developing team-building skills, and improving mental and physical health through fitness and education.

The center has become a self-sustaining success and a space of equality, where women can safely and privately congregate for fitness education and activities.

In the future, Ismail seeks to develop a certification program that will bring in female physical trainers to increase women's interest in and involvement with the center.
