Sarra Alayyan

Hello, my name is Sarra Alayyan. I am 16 years old and originally from Jordan. After spending the first 12 years of my life in Jordan, my family and I moved to Surrey, England. I am so incredibly excited to be a part of Girl Up and to meet all sorts of new people with a passion for gender equality. I also plan to start a club at my own school. As a Teen Advisor, I look forward to meeting so many amazing young women and connect with them; I am so lucky to have this opportunity!

As for me, I love theater, art, writing and fashion. When I’m older, I hope to be either an actress or a writer. I am also a professional tea drinker- green tea, chamomile, basically any tea! I love playing with my two dogs, Frodo and Marley. I go to ACS Cobham International school, which is great, despite England’s indecisive and often rainy weather.

Thank you so much for selecting me! I can’t wait to meet everyone!
