Your’s truly introducing the Syria panel with Christina Lassen, former Danish Ambassador to Syria, Hedi Larbi, Senior International Observer from the World Bank, Sanjeev Bery, Advocacy Director Mena from Amnesty International, Sasha Ghosh-Siminoff, Executive Director of the Syrian Emergency Task Force, & Malek Jandali, world-renowned Syrian pianist and composer. Couldn’t have done it without my amazing Co-Chari, Carine Abi-Akar, and the rest of the dream team!

Being a part of such an exceptional planning committee was by far one of my most fulfilling experiences to date. At Harvard, the heart of your learning can easily transpire outside of the classroom. 

From the Fall to the Arab Spring,
