Meet Yanis Sebti

My name is Yanis Sebti and I am a second-year Master of Public Diplomacy graduate student at the University of Southern California, born and raised in Casablanca, Morocco. I previously earned my BA from the University of California, San Diego in International Studies. I also currently work for a strategic communications and international relations agency specializing in the Olympic and international sports industry. I am fluent in French, Arabic, and English and am passionate about sports diplomacy. During my first year of the MPD program, I interned at the U.S. Department of State's Global Engagement Center researching about disinformation and propaganda. After I graduate, I would like to continue working in the field of sports public relations and diplomacy as the FIFA World Cup and Olympics come to the city of Los Angeles.
