Danielle Swan first fell in love with Arabic while attending Zaytuna College’s Summer Arabic Intensive in 2016. While completing Zaytuna’s undergrad program between 2017-2021, she took as many supplementary Arabic courses as possible. In addition to loving the language, she grew fond of supporting others who struggled with it. Danielle recently started teaching at Averroes High School and also works with an Islamic elementary school in the Bay Area. When not distracted by her obsession with her cat or engaged in contemplative discussions with her roomate, she pursues studies in advanced Arabic, classical tafsīr, and uṣūl al-fiqh.
