A Platform on Representation, Engagement, and Community
Author: Mennaallah Abotaleb
Mennaallah Abotaleb (she/her) is an Architectual designer, MArch graduate student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, activist for the Middle East, and an ICLI teacher. Her interest in the political world has driven her interests and research. As the daughter of two Egyptian immigrants, Menna hold the country and the region very close to my heart. Spending many summers there, and even two full years of school, she found myself marching for the Egyptian revolution. Volunteer work and activism has shaped many aspects in her life, but architecture has become a way of expressing to target issues such as the housing crisis, carbon emissions crisis, and natural disaster reconstruction.
