Ghada AlMuhanna Abalkhail is a dedicated cultural and media advisor with a focus on the Arabian Peninsula’s visual history and identity. After earning her Master of Laws (LL.M.) from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Ghada began her career as a counter- terrorism researcher. It was during this time that she recognized the need for a more authentic representation of the Arabian Peninsula’s culture and heritage. This realization inspired her to shift her focus towards media and public diplomacy, working with both public and private entities to create narratives that genuinely reflect the region’s rich history and identity.

As an M.A. Candidate in Media and Visual Anthropology at HMWK in Berlin, Ghada’s work emphasizes storytelling, cultural preservation, and cultural exchange. Her passion for the region’s identity drives her to use her Twitter and Instagram accounts to retell the stories of the Arabian Peninsula, reclaiming its narrative and challenging misconceptions. Ghada’s unique expertise, combined with her passion for detail-oriented and creative writing, enables her to craft engaging content that resonates with multiple audiences across various platforms.
