Royals Rising

Mona Dougani

Mona Dougani

Becoming a professional journalist seemed like a natural step for Mona Dougani ’22, a communication major who always enjoyed talking with people and sharing their stories.

Dougani benefited from real-world, hands-on experience working for the Queens University News Service, where students produce stories for professional media outlets. Dougani produced several important stories including a story about Afghan refugees living in the Queen City.

Her impressive resume helped Dougani land a job at one of those same Charlotte media outlets, WFAE, where she currently works as an investigative research and reporting fellow.

“Publishing my stories through the Queens University News Service was a unique and impactful experience as an aspiring journalist,” she said. “This partnership not only helped build my resume but also allowed me
to gain real-life reporting experience outside of the classroom.”

Thanks to Queens, Mona Dougani was professionally prepared.

Dabreon Davis

Dabreon Davis

When Dabreon Davis ’23 started his Queens journey, he seemed to naturally make connections across campus. He became a resident assistant. He got involved in the Black Student Union, and with Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement.

These connections led to Dabreon helping organize Barbershop Talks, an event that included free haircuts and important dialogue. Through that experience, he connected with the African American Male Wellness Agency, where he gained valuable skills and knowledge that tied back to his education toward becoming an epidemiologist working on public health policy.

“I feel like the people and connections I’ve made have been monumental to my success at Queens,” Dabreon said. “I try to surround myself with good people and those people are surrounded with good people.”

Thanks to Queens, Dabreon Davis is honorably connected.
