Through journalism and public speaking I will be a voice for the voiceless.

Once you get to know me you'll see a drive for success in everything I do and how it shines a light to inspire others. Due to hardship in my home country of Morocco, I was not free to make my own choices until the age of 17. With that freedom I used all my energy to focus on my education and future so that I can be a voice for the voiceless. For those who are still under oppression.

 

I am now the first blind Moroccan to learn 5 languages in the span of 6 years and be awarded a Fulbright Scholarship in 2017. I have inspired others at the University of Arkansas and as a visiting speaker at many American universities. I have achieved my goal of obtaining a masters in journalism and I am currently planning future career goals to share others stories of adversity as well as my own through writing and public speaking.
