I didn’t particularly like school. Didn’t want to go to university. Dad told me to go to university. I thought if I’m going to study anything it’s going to be Middle Eastern politics. Went on to do a masters in King’s war studies department. Briefly worked at a think tank after that, counter-radicalization think tank. Then went to Edelman. Worked in Edelman’s comms strategy department and specialized in trust — how do you create trust between consumers and brands? — which I found very interesting because it was more of an academic question.
Hey there! Before you go, please take a moment to support Inkstick Media.
As the first and only foreign policy outlet written explicitly by and for a broader, younger, and more diverse audience, Inkstick offers new views on the big, emergent questions and debates that typically are discussed behind closed doors in Washington DC, in elite diplomatic circles, and the halls of think tanks. Quite simply: Inkstick is foreign policy for the rest of us.
