Maria Luisa is a junior at Duke University studying International Comparative Studies and Arabic, with a concentration in Documentary Studies. She lives in Houston but calls São Paulo home. After studying in Morocco last summer, she returned to Rabat for the mint tea and is staying for the stories.
This summer, Maria Luisa interned in Amman with the Jordan Media Institute. At school, she produces an independent podcast on student life called Life Inside. She is particularly interested in radio journalism and has a soft spot for audio documentaries.
In addition to exploring the possibilities of journalism and improving her Arabic, Maria Luisa’s goal this fall is to find many more reasons to come back.
