My background is diverse, to say the least. I’m an American of Arab descent. My mother is Palestinian, and my father is Libyan. I am also a practicing Muslim woman. When I first considered a career in public relations, I dreamt I would help change the way the world communicated. In particular, I wanted to bridge the gap between the East and the West.
During my time in school at the University of Oklahoma, I was a Gaylord Ambassador, a member of a group of students selected to assist with the Journalism College’s outreach activities. As an ambassador, I was introduced to Renzi Stone, my mentor in school and current employer.
