Fellowship Spotlight: Dinah Gorayeb

Dinah Gorayeb is a first-year student at the University of Georgia studying International Affairs and Economics. Along with the Fellowship, she is also a member of an on-campus organization called Period, where they have weekly meetings to learn more about periods and period poverty, and packing parties to create period kits and distribute them to those who need it. Dinah is also apart of Georgia 4 Blue Youth. At first, the organization was focused on electing Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock into office, but now its goal is to keep our elected officials accountable. Dinah hopes to join the Double Dawgs program to obtain a Master’s degree in International Policy. She is very interested in working with international human rights organizations in the future, with an area of focus in Latin America. Through the Fellowship, Dinah hopes to gain more insight on domestic policies, and how they may affect international organizations and other countries. She states that her biggest takeaway from the pandemic is how human lives matter much more than any amount of money or profit one may gain. It gave her a lot of insight into how unjust life in America and the world is, and she hopes that in the future the United States can put its citizen’s lives before its economy. Finally, Dinah’s favorite memory from UGA is getting a piercing with the girls in her dorm during the first week of school.
