Andy Rehani Profile Photo

This month, we are joined by Andrea (Andy) Rehani, who is an Assyrian-Iraqi-American writer of poetry and prose. Her writing has been published in Grist: A Journal of the Literary Arts, MAKE: A Literary Magazine, and elsewhere. For the last five years, Andy has taught English and ESL to multilingual students in higher education in virtual and non-virtual spaces. Currently, she is working on her PhD in Curriculum Studies at DePaul University.

In this episode, Lillian speaks with Andy about her experiences attending the Center’s virtual Dialogue Nights, how she is engaging with Daisaku Ikeda’s writings in her research, her reflections on “the poetic spirit,” and the role that dialogue plays in her life–both personally and professionally.
