Hello, I’m Lina, sophomore at American University pursuing a degree in International Relations. My main interests right now are sustainable development, climate justice, and most importantly, widening inequalities brought about traditional¬†development processes. This year I will be conducting my own research project on narratives of resilience in post-Katrina New Orleans with help from American University Assistant Professor Jordanna Matlon. ¬†Aside from my academic life, I dedicate much of my time to the university’s student radio, WVAU. Stay tuned.
