Miassa was inspired to help children with autism after seeing the struggles her nephew faces with the disability. She volunteers at El Amel ('Hope'), an association that specializes in the use of animal therapy to help such children. It also gives much needed financial and emotional support to their families; without the charity, many of them would have nowhere to turn. Miassa is determined to raise awareness of autism so that the children aren’t forgotten.
