Before moving to Boston, Ammarah studied at Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas, her hometown, where she completed her B.A. in communications, with emphasis in print journalism. While at Wichita State, Ammarah worked for the college newspaper for the entirety of her undergraduate career and interned at the local newspaper, The Wichita Eagle. Ammarah also actively participated in the Muslim Student Association on campus, of which she was the sisters’ wing coordinator for 2 years, and led various projects and aided in organizing large-scale events to promote understanding of Islam and Muslims on campus. She also worked on the Islamic Society of Wichita newsletter, a monthly publication that was sent out to the Muslim community in Wichita. She was an active member of the ISW Board of Communications.
Ammarah hopes to become an integral part of the Greater Boston Muslim community as well through her writing and contributions to the field of communications. She aims to complete her education and ideally work for a non-profit organization to serve others and give back to the community.
