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.

What Motivates Me to Work Hard
Since I was young, my parents always talked about how hard they worked to get scholarships to attend medical school. As a result, I was inspired to invest a great deal of energy into my aspirations, although I acknowledge that I also have many privileges that give me access to certain opportunities. When I entered high school, I realized that I enjoy learning, and that I want to have the tools I need to produce some important work. I work hard because I want to be self-reliant. I work hard because I care about the things I do.
