Here are 10 rules for living from Susan Abulahwa: a writer, activist and founder of Playgrounds for Palestine.

Susan Abulhawa was born to refugees of the Six Day War of 1967, when her family's land was seized and Israel captured what remained of Palestine, including Jerusalem. She moved to the US as a teenager, graduated in biomedical science and established a career in medical science. In July 2001, Susan Abulhawa founded Playgrounds for Palestine, a children's organisation dedicated to upholding the right to play for Palestinian children. Mornings in Jenin is her first novel and is being published in 19 countries. Her latest book, Against The Loveless World, is out now. She lives in Pennsylvania with her daughter.

Manifesto is a series on WePresent which invites activists and creatives with something to say to write 10 rules to live by, in order to help spread their message. The artwork on this page was created by Chantal Jahchan.
