Michael Raphael

Major: International Affairs
Minor: Arabic Studies
Concentration: Middle East

Michael is a junior born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He credits his interest in the Middle East/North Africa region in large part due to his Coptic heritage and periodical visits to the region throughout his early life. When he is not studying, he could be found practicing his Arabic skills with relatives, curating his ever-expanding Arabic music playlist, indulging in period-piece dramas, jump-roping, and occasionally finding (inner) balance with yoga.
