International Affairs


I was born in Portland, grew up between Kuwait and Jordan, and went back to Portland in 2019 for college, so you can say my life has come full circle. Although I have moved a lot growing up, nothing shapes my identity and brings me more pride than being Palestinian, a huge part of my identity that I constantly highlight. I am currently pursuing an International Affairs major with a minor in Entrepreneurship, and cannot wait to start a career path out of these two interests. I’d say my greatest passion is leadership and just being there for others, which is what I always try to look for in every activity and job that I take on. I try - and love - to stay as busy as possible, but when I do have free time, I enjoy driving around with friends and listening to music.
