Aseel Abulhab is a Williams graduate from the Class of 2015. After graduating with a degree in History and International Studies, Aseel embarked on a Watson Fellowship where she traveled to over a dozen countries on a project called “Reconstructing Deafness: An Education in Silence.” She focused her research on Deaf populations’ access to education, and Deaf culture. After returning from the Watson, Aseel worked at an education policy non-profit in Boston, and then traveled to Jordan on a Fulbright Scholarship, where she continued her Watson work. She is currently a first-year Master of Social Work student at the University of Michigan, and eventually plans to work in international education policy, particularly on issues affecting differently abled students and ways to dismantle misconceptions of these students to the rest of society.
