Nour Coudsi studies Media Studies and Journalism at the University of California, Berkeley. Born and raised in Damascus, Syria, she moved to California when she lost access to her university due to the Syrian war. The negative rhetoric around refugees used in most media outlets, the many stories that are gone untold, and the lack of deployment of social media to call to action during the ongoing refugee crisis, push her every day to progress in my area of study to be able to implement the right changes. Nour is participating in UC Berkeley’s exchange program at London College of Communication this September where she will study multimedia journalism. At London, she hopes to gain new production skills as well as work with the refugee community in the United Kingdom." As part of Students Organize for Syria at Berkeley, we have been working on continuing our Books Not Bombs campaign.
Yossera Bouchtia “As a Moroccan-American Arab woman, I have been raised within seemingly conflicting worlds: The American world and the Arab/Moroccan world. I would return to my Arab/Moroccan world every night, where the cultural traditions of my family from across the world are preserved, in their own form, in the suburbs of America. My roots in the Arab world, and my loyalty and ties to my American culture, have inspired a continued personal interest in the Middle East and North African region as a whole and my films have sought to remind my community of the collective humanity to which we all equally belong.”
