I’m Alia, an Egyptian Computer Science student at NYU Abu Dhabi, exploring & learning about tech, politics, and interactive media. I’m working on Survival of the Best Fit, a web-based educational game funded by Mozilla to teach people how software could be biased. I’m also interning as an agile Product Owner, wrangling the Decentralization Space at MozFest, and am on the jury for the World Summit Awards.
Previously, I ran Botball UAE, an international robotics competition for high school students (being an ex-Botball student myself) and directed Online Model UN. I also happen to love football (Abou Treika is the g.o.a.t), film studies, and music.
