I was the Editor-in-Chief of Boston University’s International Relations Review from April 2017, but first joined the staff as a Writer for the journal in September 2015.
As Editor-in-Chief, I hired and managed staff, oversaw and designed the journal’s layout, conduct all marketing and outreach, perform final edits of articles, and wrote an editorial for each issue. I also planned and ran the first ever International Relations Review Launch Party in Fall 2017 with huge success. Under my leadership, the journal grew to its largest size ever (72 pages), and its largest staff ever (36 staff members). I also overhauled and modernized its design and expanded its reach across Boston University and Boston as a whole.
Articles I have published include:
- The Rohingya Genocide and Western powers’ unwillingness to commit to a lasting solution to genocide (Fall 2017)
- The dancers who continue their craft underground in Iran despite the country’s stringent laws against dance (Spring 2016)
- ISIS’ jihad against “pagan” artifacts and their deep historical significance (Fall 2015)
My photography is also published in many issues of the journal, including on the cover of the Fall 2017 issue.

When I came to Boston University, I brought REACT News, which I had already been running in my hometown for six years, and worked with the Editor-in-Chiefs at the time to add it to the International Relations Review as its digital news branch.
At the collegiate level, REACT News still serves to educate young people about global issues and give them an outlet in which to discuss them, but we also strive to share the perspectives of a variety of people in the professional world. In the past, we have had Ambassadors, world-famous singers, and professors from various universities give their take on the issues that our world faces.
