The US IVLP for Journalists and Other News Updates

There is a lot to tell you after a break from writing, dating to recent changes in my life. First, I had to come with a career shifting decision and resign from Kuwait Times newspaper. Then in May, I joined the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP); the Edward R. Marrow program for journalists; research and investigation, presented by the US Department of State and organized by the World Learning Organization.

As a journalist for Kuwait Times that covers culture and society, I am impressed by the tenacity of the rising art scene in Kuwait and by the growing spread of culture, artistic events, social gatherings and lectures, collective and personal exhibitions ñ including many that are not supported by official bodies. I admire the courage and dedication of those who dare to show their work, to make their passions come alive. And I am inspired by them to do the same for myself. To accomplish something that has meaning and interest for me personally.
