My experience on MOJ inspired me to find out more about women’s land inheritance rights, so when I returned to Scripps College, I dedicated my senior year to writing a 68-page senior thesis about how land inheritance rights improve women’s well being.
While on MOJ, I also learned how important language skills are to journalism. I continued my Arabic studies, and in 2013 I won a State Department Critical Language Scholarship to study Arabic in Oman.
I have also continued studying French and am currently working in France as an English teaching assistant while I apply for research grants to return to Morocco.
Eventually, I hope to publish academic research on women’s land inheritance rights in Morocco.
