The Crisis, the magazine for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), published my story about New Orleans Providing Literacy to All Youth (NOPLAY) in May 2013.

I initially covered the situation for The Louisiana Weekly, the state’s second oldest publication, and then wrote a follow-up piece for The Lens, an online, investigative news organization.
Elections were a critical turning point following the Egyptian revolution. In the fall of 2011, I reported for German outlet DW on non-resident Egyptians’ efforts to have their voices included in that country’s first election since the fall of Hosni Mubarak.
