I am a junior ('24) at Harvard University studying International Affairs, Modern Middle Eastern Studies and East Asian and Pacific Studies.
My family and I came to the U.S. in 2009 after living in Iraq and Jordan, and I was naturalized as a U.S. citizen in 2013. I grew up in Virginia where I received my International Baccalaureate and AP Capstone Diplomas at Princess Anne High School.
I identify as Arab-American and am fluent in Arabic and English. I am also learning Chinese.
I enjoy strength training, watching documentaries, visiting art museums, walks with friends, and drinking lots of coffee and tea.
I am grateful to all the mentors who took the time to invest in my academic and professional development.
