UCL Friends of Israel Society welcomes you to an evening with Lian Najami, the first ever Israeli-Arab Rhodes Scholar!!!

A Haifa native, Lian graduated with a BA in Political Science from the University of Haifa in 2016 as Valedictorian of her class. In 2017 she earned the prestigious Rhodes scholarship, entitling her to free education at the University of Oxford.

Fluent in five languages, Lian has interned in Washington DC for Senator Brian Schatz, a Hawaiian Jewish Democrat, where she analysed counter terrorism strategies and helped draft the senator’s speech against Donald Trump’s travel ban.

With her message that Arabs such as herself can succeed in the Jewish State, Lian has become one of the most sought-after public speakers in the domain of Israel education, and has spoken in various different countries including the US and Germany.

Many thanks to StandWithUs and UJS for facilitating the organisation of this event.
