New Jordanian Magazine for Youth between 14-25
In its first edition launched in May, a magazine dedicated to raise the “voice of the youth” appeared on the stands in an innovative style that marries classical Arabic expressions with colloquial terms typically used by young men and women in their social gatherings and outings, said The Jordan Times.

“The time is ripe to give the youth their share in the media.”
