Luai Shweiki

Age: 20

Residence: Jerusalem

Occupation: I work in a construction company.

Family & Childhood: I have three sisters and three brothers among which I am the eldest.

Sport: I started playing football when I was 10 years old and was a member of the local football team. At the age of 17 I became the football coach for the Peres Center team in my village. Through the Peres Center I was introduced to the AFL and became very interested in it.

Politics & the “other side”: I am a person who grew up in Jerusalem facing all the daily complexities and suffering from all the unjust policies that the Israeli government is practicing against the Arab Jerusalem residents. Living in Jerusalem means dealing with Israelis on daily basis for the good and the bad.
