Tell us about an influential experience you had in the program:

Middle East and North Africa (or, if you prefer, Southwest Asian and North Africa - SWANA), but I ended up examining the region from various angles, including climate security, human rights, media consumption, and agriculture.

Future plans:

I plan on pursuing a Masters in Public Health. My goals are to fill the gap in research on Arab health and create programs for the betterment of their health.
