In Palestine, it's not that unusual for children to be forced to grow up before their time. Living under occupation exposes youth to the realities of how difficult the world can be. But 9-year-old Janna Jihad, who lives in the village of Nabi Saleh, not only has an awareness of the injustice that her people are facing; she has taken it upon herself to help inform the world of what is happening under Israeli occupation.

Starting when she was just 8 years old, Janna considers covering the conflict to be her duty, and constantly updates her Facebook and other social media pages with the latest protests and occupational issues.

One video shows her arguing with Isareli soldiers over allowing her and her mother to pray in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, under the fear of her mother's arrest.

In this YouTube video by Vice News, Jihad explains that she considers herself to be one of the Third Intifada's reporters, after finding a gap in the coverage of the anti-occupation protests in Palestine.
