A little bit about me: I am student at the Georgetown School of Foreign Service majoring in Culture and Politics and minoring in Arab Studies.  I speak Modern Standard Arabic and Levantine Colloquial Arabic.  I got my start in organizing, advocacy, and human rights in the Darfur movement back in 2005, and have been educating myself and engaging in social justice issues ever since.  I have had the opportunity to intern with the US Campaign for Burma, Washington Empowered Against Violence, and Vital Voices, and spent the fall of 2011 studying abroad in Jordan. I spent the summer of 2012 volunteering with Inspire Dreams on the West Bank.

This blog is a space to discuss global social justice issues in terms of gender, cultural discourse, and the agency to create social change from within.  Fair warning: I may linger in the Middle East and the United States, the terrains on which I am most familiar.
