Hi, I am Jehad! I am a senior journalism major. I love basketball more than I love things that possess the ability to love me back. Working for the Daily Eastern News has been one of the most positive and rewarding experiences of my educational career. “Ridiculous” is my go-to word when I don’t really have a reaction to something. I like to fumble around the words “yeah” and “no” when trying to make a statement.
