Sara El-Yafi Headshot

Some girl who doesn’t blink

Good morning.

I say good morning because that’s what it always is when you’re around: Sunny.

My name is Sara El-Yafi and I write. I have a lot to say and a lot to share and I do it right here. As a well-rounded socio-political reader and social writer, I do my best to make sure that my posts about politics, culture, public policy, nation-building, development, the world and love bring out an avid reader in you as you hopefully find an echo of your thoughts in my writings.

I am Lebanese. My background is predominantly in politics and recently has spanned the world of film. I hold a Master in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. I worked as a political adviser, and now I work in Hollywood. Point? To make political film for the greater good of mankind and plantkind.

Some of you may already know me as the author of the Harvard Israeli Mezze Station post that went viral on Facebook (if you don’t have Facebook, click here), which then spilled over into national media, then spilled over into international media, then spilled over into the universe, and then reached my dad, and if so, well I am glad to have you back. For those of you wondering about this story, it’s a fun story. You can read more about it on my website here or in JPost or in AlArabiya or in L’Orient-Le Jour or just call my mom.

Luckily, I have plenty more stories to share with you. Let’s now start with this story of our friendship. Glad to have you here. Subscribe to my website. And feel free to contact me if you wish to tell me something or maybe vent about something or ask me to write about a specific topic. You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter.

So many conversations to be had, let’s get started.


Sara El-Yafi
