Melody Fakhourie

Global Activities Scholars Program

Melody (she/her/hers) is from Wilmington, Delaware, and received a Bachelor of Social Work with a minor in Peace Studies from Barry University in Miami, Florida, where she spent her formative years. Melody studied abroad in Indonesia at Universitas Airlangga, concentrating on Multicultural Communications and Relations and Religious Pluralism, and teaches English online to students located primarily in East Asia. Melody has a music-focused arts background that includes recording and performing songs of freedom and empowerment, creative writing, expressive arts in social work practice, and multi-disciplinary arts program management for youth in non-profit settings. She considers artistic disciplines to be effective vehicles with the political agency needed for raising awareness and creating change. Melody joined the Global Activities Scholars Program to gain more experience with global social work settings and empower her plans to address issues caused by international conflicts, poverty, and economic exploitation. She is honored to continue her education as a Global Activities Scholar at the University of Michigan.

Melody will spend the summer in Accra, Ghana, with the Pan African Heritage Museum leveraging social work knowledge and skills within the development and mission-aligned programs of the organization.
