I am a senior economics and newspaper and online journalism major at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University.
I was born and raised in Bahrain, and I came to the United States in 2012 to pursue my undergraduate degree. During my years here, I’ve covered beats such as diversity and the Syracuse City School District.
I’ve always enjoyed reading, and that includes a range of content, from dense academic articles to my Twitter newsfeed. I also love writing and art.
