As an educator, I have over 20 years of experience at two of the most prestigious design schools in the country. In the classroom, I aim to foster a learning environment where students are unafraid to experiment, explore and express themselves.
I am a Muslim-Egyptian-American mother, sister, friend. I am a woman of color, educator, artist, designer. I am an advocate, storyteller and community leader, living in New York City. Each role I play shapes my art, frames my approach as an educator and is woven into the causes I advocate for.
