What About Me?

Hello! My name is Mariam Elgafy and I am a Graduate student at the University of Cincinnati. I graduated from UC with a double major in Education and Communication, with a minor in Political Science. I am currently earning my MA in Communication. As part of my MA program, I am teaching Public Speaking and Business Communication classes in UC's Department of Communication. Post-Masters, I plan to apply to Law school where my love for policy making, educational reform, and political science can come to full bloom.

Full plate? Not quite.

​But allow me to tell you my story....

I have been told that having too many interests means a person is labelled "undecided" or "too ambitious"; but I would have to strongly disagree. I am focused on who I want to become and through many experiences have come to know the path to my personal success. And if it takes a double major, a minor, 3 part-time jobs, and athletic performance, then let it be. Focus, determination, and perseverance. ​

I have always believed in education being key to civilization and eventually granting the rights of others. I spoke out on behalf of the oppressed and soon labelled as "The Voice of the Voiceless". I have come to realize that I would rather give others the platform to speak and ignite their personal stories; because the power of storytelling and personal narratives is unparalleled.

I speak. For you. For me. My voice is heard.

To speak louder. Challenge more. Give more. Browse more. Think bigger. Love harder. Achieve the impossible.
