I'm the Audience Engagement Editor at The Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit investigative newsroom in Washington D.C.
I am passionate about inclusive media, creative writing, art, music, social entrepreneurship, and women's empowerment.
I don't believe in having one job or sticking to one path so it's really hard to condense who I am into an easily digestible bio. Looking back, I'd say the theme of my life has been living at the intersection of storytelling and social impact.
In my spare time, I'm writing a novel, dabbling in poetry, and pursuing various creative projects including a multimedia exploration of the untold stories of the Eritrean diaspora.
I received my master's degree in International Media from American University and my bachelor's degrees in Journalism and Global Studies from Arizona State University.
If you want to make me happy, please bring me a cup of tea and a fresh donut.
