Bio

After her academic curiosity was peaked as an undergraduate studying Communication at UCD, Amira decided to further explore the realm of Communication and pursue her master’s degree. When Amira is not attending classes, she serves as the department’s research assistant, wherein she supports faculty in on-going research projects relating to communication and globalization, and assists with other departmental related tasks. In addition to this position, Amira also serves as the department’s International College of Beijing Student Liaison. Her main priority in this position is to facilitate the socialization of the Chinese exchange students into American culture, offering tutoring, mentorship, and engaging monthly outings.

As a master’s student, her academic interests lie the study of critical & feminist theory and rhetorical criticism; social justice and globalization; and post-9/11 international relations. Amira is currently applying to several PhD programs on the east coast with the hopes that the continuance of her education will provide her with the knowledge and skills she needs to one day work for the United Nations and fight for social justice on a global scale.​
