A New American Dream | Alaa Elassar | TEDxGeorgiaStateU

vor 2 Jahren

While some may feel suffocated or restrained by the ideals of the American Dream, others are inspired and motivated. The American Dream can embrace the freedom and ability for everyone to pursue their own desires if we expand our understanding of what it means. We must recognize that the variety of our dreams serve as an inspiration to us all.

Alaa Elassar is a junior at Georgia State University. She is a journalism and political science double major who graduated high school two years early. Last May, she received her Associate of Arts degree in journalism at Georgia State’s Perimeter College and plans to graduate Georgia State in Spring 2018. Alaa became an intern at CNN International in 2016 and worked in writing and production with CNNI Special Projects. She is also the managing editor of and has been featured with CBS46 and WSB-TV. Alaa’s free time goes into her writing and photography, with her passions surrounding politics and social justice.
