Work and Media
Throughout the years, I have given several interviews, and participated in different projects in Cleveland and abroad. I have been featured in WEWS Channel 5, Fox 8, WKYC 3, Roya TV in Jordan, AlJazeera English, Spectrum News, The National, The Plain Dealer, Miami Herald, and more.
I have also been asked to speak in different universities, events, and platforms. I have given speeches in Kent State University, Cleveland State University, The City Club of Cleveland, Cleveland Public Theatre, Ohio Guidestone, and The Centers of Ohio. I have also given speeches for the Arab America Foundation Connect Summit in 2021 and 2022.
In April 2023, I was invited to attend the first ever congressional luncheon for National Arab American Heritage Month in the Library of Congress. I was also invited to special White House Briefing for Arab American Leaders to commemorate National Arab American Heritage Month. My work with the Arab America Foundation for NAAHM, has led to the Cleveland Cavaliers to officially celebrate NAAHM in April 2021 during one of their home games.
