Junior Editor | Journalist
Born in Fullerton, California on the fifth of December in 1994, Barakat currently resides at her place of birth. With a high school diploma and as a third year college student, she finds interest in foreign policy, the Middle East, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Islamic affairs, American politics, food safety, public health, police brutality, law enforcement reformation, and prison reformation. Before joining Anti-Media’s team in January of 2015, her previous employers include The Night Owl Fullerton and Nothing Bundt Cakes. As an independent journalist, Sydney also helps curate our content and produces Anti-Media’s weekly newsletter.
When asked about her bragging rights, this was her response:
Extensive knowledge on the Middle East as a whole— including Middle Eastern politics, affairs, and history dating back to the 17th c. and onward — with an emphasis on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Extensive knowledge on Islam and the practices and ideologies therein. Extensively studied the structure of the American Government and American Politics, and the intricacies therein. Forever a protester— often through the means of written language— against the injustices and crimes against humanity committed unto the oppressed all over the globe.
