I have been working in Education for 10 years now and continue to feel incredibly grateful to learn and grow alongside my students. I am also a published writer and food blogger. My work focuses on diaspora, community, and reversing stigmatizing and dehumanizing narratives of marginalized peoples. I am also a founding member of the Iraqi Narratives Project, an oral history collection in collaboration with California State University at Long Beach.
