What's the Story?


AU's School of Communication inspires leaders through excellence in teaching, research, creativity and unique real-world opportunities.

A Passion for Storytelling

There are a lot more opportunities out there to create something that matters.

Nesima Aberra loves storytelling, but believes we need to expand where and how stories are told and who tells them. At AU, she explored how media shapes the way we understand our world through innovative, thoughtful, and relevant stories. Through her Dean's Internship at VOX, she's learned how to find compelling human interest angles in more complex news events. Now she's more excited than ever to use literary journalism to change the way people think and feel and help make our society more informed and empowered.
