What’s your favorite part about living in DC?

DC is so full of things to see and do; every Tuesday I go out to the city to explore. My favorite places to go to are museums (almost all of them are free) and M street to go shopping!

Where on campus have you found support or mentorship?

My best friends, both of whom live on my floor, and at church in Kay (Editor's Note: Kay Chapel is AU's Inter-faith Spiritual Center.)

What do you plan to do when you graduate?

I plan on working for non-profits for a while until I save up enough to hopefully one day start my own non-profit for research on women's policy in Egypt.
