I am currently studying linguistics in The Middle East. I have attended a language courses in Nice, Paris, Rome, Vienna, Brussels and Cairo. In June, I attended the Chatham House event Cyber 2017 where I met world leaders and sat at panels to discuss cyber security and the future of a collective, international cyberspace. In October, I attended the Arab U.S. Association for Communicaion Educators 22nd annual conference on Journalism and Mass Communication in the Arab world.

I am currently enrolled in Praxis, which is an intensive business program, and am working daily towards my goals of working in the media and journalism industry. I have a lot on my plate right now but I’m up to the challenge. Here are posts that speak about my experiences with Praxis:

I’m also working on a project called ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’ where I explore different styles of art and certain artists. I travel all throughout Europe and the Middle East, visiting many museums and reading many books. Every so often, I publish an article or video talking a about a specific style of art. Here is the first content from H.I.W.T.A.I.
