Despite my Palestinian origin, I was born and raised in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, my second home. I interned for CNN Abu Dhabi and worked for a local newspaper in Dubai, Gulf News, where I published multiple stories on entertainment news.
My portfolio captures a glimpse of my interest and passion for art, filmmaking, and storytelling. Telling stories that bring meaning to everyday life, shift perceptions and change opinions is why I’m currently a broadcast journalism graduate student at American University, Washington D.C.
Because I have a passion for traveling, I chose to do a summer abroad at Universidad De Barcelona, Spain in 2016 and participated in a semester abroad program in Fall 2017 at American University. I graduated with a degree in Mass Communication and a concentration in journalism in July 2018 from the American University of Sharjah.
