Ryan Ang is a rising Senior at UCLA (Political Science and Jewish Studies '20) who is passionate about Middle Eastern geopolitics, culture, and narrative. Notably, he is interested in exploring and analyzing American foreign policy towards the region, and how it influences the behavior of regional key players. At present, beyond academia, Ryan serves as a Fellow for Passages, Hasbara Fellowships, and Christians United for Israel, where he advocates for dialogue and a peaceful solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict. In his free time, Ryan can be found at niche cafes across Los Angeles—sipping from a hot cup of chai, and reading a book about critical theory, or blogging for the Times of Israel.
