“I knew that there was a higher power (NYU) that had the agency to promote universal values in human rights and make a difference. And I don’t know the NYU-Abu Dhabi government relationship, but I know it’s NYU’s names on those buildings and on the worker’s hard hats, and that really got to me.
That’s when I decided to speak out and pursue my piece. I’m a student, but I have a voice. After my article was published, I realized that exposure wasn’t enough. I still hold journalism to the highest regard, but I wanted to do more. I needed to do more. And the next step just happened.”
