Since moving to Shatila Palestinian refugee camp four years ago, Samih Mahmoud has feared discrimination due to his origins. Rather than accept this reality, the shy 18-year-old from the Yarmouk camp in Syria has joined nine other teenagers from the camp in launching an online platform aimed at creating a new narrative around refugees and the camps."The camp has a bad reputation, but this is a quick judgment," said Mahmoud while typing on a computer keyboard. In one of his videos, Samih asks residents of Shatila what the camp means to them. "Campji" is a new Facebook and YouTube channel entirely produced by 10 young citizen journalists living in the Shatila camp. The first series of videos produced by the citizen journalists focuses on personal portraits of talented individuals residing in the camp.For Malak, he is one of the many examples of how people inside the camp react positively to adversities.
