Amani Hammami Discovers Unexpected Benefits from her Semester in the U.S.
When Amani Hammami joined Kent State University for her U.S. exchange semester, she had a plan to make her study abroad fulfilling. Considering this experience as a privilege, she decided to embrace all the opportunities that come her way: From immersing herself in the state’s history, culture, and tradition, to making new cosmopolitan friends and accumulating good memories, and enjoying the university’s academic culture, etc. Yet, this experience made her identify a latent talent: After a week from joining the KSU Club Fair, Hammami received an email about the opening of applications for anchoring and news reporting for Fall 2021 and decided to apply. After the initial selection, she conducted auditions and got the role. Amani anchors weather every Thursday at KentWired.com and occasionally anchors news as well. “It has been an amazing experience and I fell in love with this position!” says Hammami.
