Riham is a Junior Associate with a passion for qualitative research and advocacy through storytelling. With a background in critical race theory and public service, Riham hopes to contribute to the social impact necessary to make global health equity a reality. Through her previous role as a Field Representative in Congressman Andy Kim’s office, she worked directly with constituents and community organizations alike on numerous issue areas ranging from immigration to social security benefits. Her prior experiences in interning at the House of Representatives and organizing for a congressional campaign yielded an interest in policy and strategic communications.

Following her interest in research and theory, she recently co-authored a published academic paper entitled “South Asian Youth in Diaspora; Anti-Racist Discourses and Entangled Epistemes.” Native to the Jersey Shore, and now living in Brooklyn, Riham is happy to call the east coast home.Connect on LinkedIn
