Ala’a Ibrahim loves trash TV, and she’s not shy to admit it.
She especially likes reality shows – The Real Housewives of Dallas is a favorite (partly because she’s from Texas).
“My secret’s out,” Ibrahim said. “I’m embracing it now.”
Born in Oklahoma and raised in Houston, Ibrahim enjoys visual storytelling so much that she wants to do it professionally one day. She’s studying multimedia journalism at The University of Texas at Austin with hopes of becoming a filmmaker when she graduates.
“I’ve always been interested in telling stories in different forms,” said Ibrahim, who wants to specialize in documentary work. “I just love the creative aspect of reporting.”
