Amna Khalafalla is a sophomore majoring in sociology with a profound interest in urban sociology. With the support of the Benjamin A. Gilman scholarship, she will fulfill her long-term goal of bettering her Arabic at the American University in Dubai. In addition, she will be taking Middle Eastern Studies courses there. When she returns to the U.S, she hopes to expose the students at the MSA club to the scholarship as well as share her experiences and provide support with the application process. She is thankful to Lotte Buiting, Kelly Weissberger, and Susan Bell.
