Loubna is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of California, Riverside. Her research is on transnational Palestinian youth movements before and after the 2011 Arab Uprisings. She received her Master of Arts Degree from the College of Ethnic Studies at San Francisco State University (SFSU), and is the first student to graduate through the Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas’ Initiative at SFSU.
Much of Loubna’s research interests and methods are informed by her experience as a student and youth organizer. She was one of the active student leaders in the General Union of Palestine Students (GUPS) at SFSU who spearheaded the campaign to inaugurate the historic Palestinian Cultural Mural honoring Dr. Edward Said on the Cesar Chavez Student Center. Loubna had also long worked at the Arab Cultural and Community Center (ACCC) in San Francisco in varying positions until assuming the position of Executive Director in 2011.
