Hailing from Fargo, ND — Suzanne asked the question ‘Why?’ all too often as a child. She remembers always making pictures of world peace when her classmates were drawing mom and dad. Between her Palestinian background and interest in national politics, she found answers while earning her Bachelor’s degree is Sociology and Political Science with a minor in Gender Studies at Minnesota State University Moorhead. Wanting to conduct original research about the experience of gender in militarized settings, she went on to her Master’s Degree in Sociology with an emphasis in Women and Gender Studies at Roosevelt University in Chicago. When she isn’t working with WAMM (Women Against Military Madness), she is at a bookstore, listening to her vinyl collection, or at a music festival.
