Ánimo Watts sophomore, Enas Ibrahim was amongst 25 students selected to participate in the Annenberg Youth Academy for Media and Civic Engagement at USC this summer. The AYA is a three-week summer intensive academy for high school students from the communities surrounding the USC University Park and Health Science Campuses. Ibrahim was exposed to the equivalent of first-year college level courses, and develop a rich conceptual understanding and practice of the necessary role that media communications and journalism play in fashioning civic-minded thought leaders and innovators.


She had the opportunity to work with the scholars who are advancing issues of race, gender, and ethnicity in communication and journalism communities of practice.
