About Me

I am a multilingual Fulbright alumna, journalist, feminist, accessibility advocate, and human rights activist. I earned my BA in applied linguistics from Mohamed V University in Rabat, Morocco and my MA in journalist from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.

After surviving homelessness, abuse, and neglect from my family and fighting to keep my own head above water for years, I’ve finally built up enough knowledge, resources, and platforms to focus on empowering and elevating others as well.

I reside in the United States and accept speaking engagements in person and online, nationally and internationally. I’m also open to relocating for full-time work, though for side-projects and short-term contracts, I prefer to work remotely. If you’re interested in any of the services I offer or would like to collaborate on a joint project, please don’t hesitate to email me

Services offered

Accessibility testing with consulting, public speaking, media relations with communications consulting, disability with inclusion consulting, scholarship application consulting, advising new Americans with disabilities
