Senior Writer

Raissa Batakji covers LAU’s events and showcases the work of the university’s faculty, staff and students. Before joining LAU in April 2018 as senior writer, she managed different Procter and Gamble (P&G) accounts at Leo Burnett Beirut spanning a variety of consumer markets from the Philippines and the Arab Peninsula to Russia and Mexico. Having graduated with a BA in Communication Arts with an emphasis on Journalism from LAU in 2009, she began her career as communication manager with Teach For Lebanon, a local non-profit that sends top university students to rural areas in Lebanon to teach at underprivileged schools. From then on, she felt strongly about storytelling, particularly in the context of education, and that passion has been growing ever since.
