Passionate about human stories and sustainability, Nadine strives to continuously shed light on topics that contribute to the betterment of society. Her stories mainly focus on the environment, wildlife conservation, and human impact. In 2015, Nadine’s work was propelled by the catastrophic effects of Lebanon’s garbage crisis on both human health and wildlife, whereby she helped produce stories for both local and international stations about the situation. In 2014, a story she produced for Al Jazeera English in Beirut helped secure a home for a Syrian refugee family that would have otherwise had to carry through with the arranged marriage of their 14-year-old child to a landlord in exchange for housing.

She earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Western Sydney in 2008, majoring in Communication Arts and Media Production, and is currently working on her Masters in Multimedia Journalism at the Lebanese American University.
