I am an Arab-American honors student at American University in Washington DC. As a CLEG (Communications, Legal Institutions, Economics, and Government) major, I am devoted to academics and am a member of both the honors and leadership programs at American University. I have spent the past six years living in the Middle East and am bilingual in Arabic and English. My international experience and heritage have contributed to my passion for politics and public affairs. I am passionate about climate change and human rights, particularly in regards to the Middle East.
I am able to synthesize information effectively and clearly as a result of my studies of Psychology, History, and English at “Higher Level” in the International Baccalaureate program. During my time in the International Baccalaureate program, in which I graduated with a score of 42 out of 45, I wrote research papers on topics from the history of burlesque in America to an analysis of Alice in Wonderland.
