Samih Eloubeidi is a first-year student in the Anthropology of Peace and Human Rights Program. A Birmingham native, he graduated from Birmingham-Southern College in 2018 with a degree in Biology. Although Samih’s undergraduate major had little to do with peace and human rights, attending a liberal arts college allowed him to take courses outside of his major that turned his personal passions into career aspirations. Thus, he plans to pursue a juris doctorate to practice international human rights law. Before going to law school, however, Samih wanted to gain a more in-depth understanding of peace and human rights and decided to pursue a Master’s degree in the Anthropology of Peace and Human Rights.

Samih is a strong proponent of intersectionality and minority solidarity, but because he is a child of Middle Eastern immigrants and has always identified as Middle Eastern himself, he is especially interested in practicing international human rights law in the Middle East and other Muslim-majority countries.
