I am a J.D. holder from American University Washington College of Law. Following graduation, I worked at Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights as a legal fellow. During my time at WCL, I interned for the International Refugee Assistance Project, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, and the International Justice Program at Human Rights Watch. Additionally, I worked as a research assistant for the Chairperson of the Committee Against Torture, as a student attorney in the UNROW Human Rights Impact Litigation Clinic, and provided pro bono assistance to the Impact Litigation Project at WCL.

I currently am a Nonresident Fellow at the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy where I co-founded and now lead Eshhad, a project that documents sectarian incidents in the Middle East. I received her B.A. in Psychology at Covenant College. Twitter: @amiramikhail

Sad and unnecessary. People will want to help!
