In 2014, Mikey Muhanna started afikra out of a desire to create an intellectual community in NYC dedicated to exploring Arab history and culture. Farah Assir, Leen Sadder, and Rami Abou-Khalil were among the original team members whose contributions have helped shape our mission, our brand, and the NYC chapter. Other early contributors include Malek Rasamny, Kareem Salman, Dina Mahmoud, Tala Mansi, Dalia Hamati, Olivia Shabb, Yazan Kopty, Laila Mokhiber, & Fady Atallah.
Over the past few years, afikra has grown to cities all over the world. Currently, there are a whole host of volunteer team members who run the afikra chapters globally. To learn more about the people behind afikra, check out the information below.
Our team is always growing! If you are interested in getting involved at afikra, feel free to contact us.
