She received her B.S. in political science with honors from Vanderbilt, where she was the school’s first Arab-American elected as Student Body President. She graduated with her J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School.

About The Truman National Security Project
The Truman National Security Project unites veteran, political, and policy leaders to develop and advance strong, smart, and principled solutions to the global challenges Americans now face. We believe that America must continue to build and empower an international community of free people and just societies, defend that way of life when necessary, and offer that opportunity to all.

In service of that vision, the Truman Project identifies, organizes, and positions American leaders to communicate, advocate, and lead on our nation’s most pressing global challenges. Our membership includes defense, policy and political leaders at the national, state, and local level, many of whom have served their country in conflict zones around the world. This growing movement is supported by Americans from every state and walk of life, dedicated to service, a set of common values, and a shared vision of America’s role in today’s world.
