Kanzi Kamel

American University of Beirut, Lebanon

Kanzi Kamel is a final-year Media and Communications student at the American University of Beirut. Though she was born in America to Egyptian and Palestinian parents, Kanzi now lives, studies and works in Beirut. Her work experience as a lifestyle reporter at popular city guide, and as Associate Editor for the university newspaper, introduced her to the subtle and untouristed charms of the city. She currently works as a junior publisher at Keeward, a multinational venture development and publishing company. In her spare time, Kanzi practices yoga and archery, and has recently joined Beirut Juggles, a local community that offers juggling, poi and flower stick classes. Despite the fact that Kanzi loathes conforming to cultural ideals, her greatest passion lies the culinary arts and she genuinely enjoys serving tea and biscuits to guests. She hopes to one day pursue a career in publishing, film and digital media, in whatever form that may take.
