Humanizing Palestine | Lilia Brooker | TEDxDeerfield

In her talk, Lilia Brooker effectively connects the issues facing the Palestinian people, their contributions to the world, and the personal qualities and relationships she holds so dearly as a member of a Palestinian-American family. Lilia’s talk begins with the familiar topics that are often covered on the news, but moves gracefully in a moving personal narrative about the people of Palestine.

Lilia Brooker’s interests include travel, tennis, music, theatre, and world affairs. She identifies as half-Palestinian and has volunteered at a Palestinian refugee camp in Jordan where she worked with children and taught art to mentally and physically disabled people in the community.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
