Sneak peek on how PS4L mission came to be: "[...] my whole perspective for sports and my whole personality and mindset shifted from sports, and this is something that I wanted to give as hope for the kids [in Palestine]. For me, sports was this really nice space and a bubble that I wanted to go to."
