Karis Ailabouni | كاريس عيلبوني
My name is Karis Ailabouni and I’m currently based in my hometown of Chicago. Previously, I spent 3 years in Jerusalem coordinating a study abroad program for the University of Notre Dame. This experience not only sparked my passion for international education and cultural exchange, but also helped me forge deep connections to my Palestinian heritage. I recently graduated with a Master of Global Affairs and International Peace Studies degree from Notre Dame, which I hope will catalyze a career implementing programs for social justice in the Middle East or U.S. In my free time I enjoy running, playing violin, reading, and watching British TV period dramas.
