Bio

I am a Palestinian-American immigrant whose dream is to become a couple and family therapist and earn my certificate in sex therapy. As a queer person, my passion is to empower other LGBTQ+ individuals to live as their authentic identity. To do this, I aspire to be a family and sex therapist so I can help young adults navigate their journey of self-discovery and how their identity impacts their relationships with others. I am a great candidate because I am knowledgeable about LGBTQ+ identities both personally and through research, and I am committed to advocating for social justice, community, and practicing self-reflection.
