Being awarded the Mohammed Bin Rashid School for Communication Scholarship, I moved to Dubai to study journalism at the American University in Dubai in late 2012. I am pursuing a Bachelors of Communication and Information Studies and a Middle Eastern Studies Certificate. Before moving to the UAE, I discovered my interest in social media and translation through Twitter. I was the lead of the volunteer Arabic moderators at the Twitter Translation Centre until August 2014. I am a freelance writer and translator. A number of my pieces were published in the leading Lebanese daily Assafir Newspaper.
