Derar: "On the first day the attacks started, I was studying for my exams. My family and I had to leave our home and go to southern Gaza. But after the incursion, the situation became more difficult and much more terrifying. The sound of the shelling is louder, the tanks are closer…. We don't have electricity and we don't have a lot of food. We have one meal a day in order to save food. I really want to use my experience as a journalism major to explain the situation to the rest of the world, but right now I want to help the injured."
