Elie started Peace Heroes in 2013 and has since seen it implemented in a variety of countries around the world. Elie’s life experiences of growing up in Israel/Palestine have greatly enhanced her understanding of the nuances and challenges embedded in attempting to change the fixed mindsets of communities locked in conflict, which is why she chose to pursue graduate studies in Conflict & Reconciliation and Creative Writing so as to better communicate the powerful but often neglected narrative of our world as seen through the lens of peace, not war. Her research and writing skills are the foundation for the collection of stories of Peace Heroes from all around the world.
