My name is Annelise, and I am a sophomore Arab Studies major at Davidson College. I’m from DC where I live with my parents, four younger siblings, dog, cat, and three chickens. It’s a full house! Some of my favorite activities are ones I and my siblings do together, such as hiking, playing games, watercoloring, knitting, and going on road trips.
One of the things that drew me to Davidson was its Arab Studies program. I started learning Arabic in eighth grade, and I knew it was something I would pursue in college and beyond. I am specifically interested in Arabic children’s stories and refugee narratives, and I hope to research those topics in some capacity. Although I do not know what direction this interest will take me, I enjoy my studies and am excited to keep learning!
