Hanaa Osseiran

American University of Beirut, Lebanon

Born and raised in a small city in South Lebanon, I am currently a student in the American University of Beirut majoring in English literature and pursuing a diploma in Media and Communications. I chose my particular major due to my passion for reading and writing. Literature is my form of self-expression; I aspire to shape my life and identity by discovering the world through literature and travel. I recently acquired a strong predilection to Media studies due to the awareness of the extent to which media play a transforming role in our everyday lives. As a devout feminist, I am particularly interested in media depictions of women and gender roles; I am thus motivated in playing an active role in better understanding the workings and mechanics of the media in their portrayals of biases and ideals.
