Reine Azzi grew up in Nigeria and later came back to Lebanon to complete her BA in English Language and Literature.
She was accepted into a scholarship program funded by the European Commission, the Erasmus Mundus, and graduated with distinction among the first group of humanities graduates, with an emphasis on literature and gender studies.
Prior to joining LAU, Azzi worked for an international NGO, where she served as reporting officer and monitoring manager on a number of programs in South Lebanon and Nahr El Bared.
At LAU, she teaches a number of literature, language, and philosophy courses and is also the licensee, curator, and host of TEDxLAU, the first independently-organized TED-like university event in Lebanon.
