Hala is a Muslim-Palestinian-American. She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication and a Permaculture Design Certification from George Mason University in May 2015. Alongside being a Market Manager at FRESHFARM, she also works as a Greenhouse and Gardens Coordinator for the Office of Sustainability at George Mason University (GMU) and an Assistant Parkour Coach for PK Move.
One of Hala's most recent accomplishments was connecting the GMU Office of Sustainability to Mason & Greens, a zero-waste store owned by GMU alum Justin Marino in Alexandria, VA. In August 2021, the GMU Office of Sustainability partnered with Mason & Greens at the City of Alexandria sidewalk sale. They sold live plants and produce to support the program's volunteer and internship opportunities and the maintenance of their three sustainable agriculture sites on campus. They earned $581 and sold six flower bouquets, 63 potted plants, and 67 produce items over two days.
During her free time, Hala loves to hike, bike, rollerblade, garden, cook, bake, hang out with chickens, and do parkour.
