Sarah Sheya is the Project Coordinator for the Out of Eden Learn project. She joined the team in the fall of 2014. She handles the day-to-day operations of Out of Eden Learn's online platform, collects and organizes student work for research purposes, manages the project's social media, serves as a point of contact for participating educators, and conducts media outreach initiatives, including video production. Her research interests include the ways in which arts and media, specifically photography, can impact how youth engage in dialogue across cultural differences, with a focus on the Middle East, as well as how art and media can help young people from marginalized groups become the leaders in representing themselves and their stories. She has a Bachelor of Arts from American University in Multimedia Journalism, Arabic Language, and Arab Studies and a Master of Arts in Teaching Arabic from Boston University. Before joining Project Zero, Sheya worked in the nonprofit sector as a youth program director and media specialist.
