    Angela Cooke_Jackson

     At age 24, she is one of the youngest people to ever write a weekly column in the New York Times. She writes the column "Life, Interrupted," chronicling her experiences as a young woman living with cancer in her twenties. Suleika has also been featured in Glamour magazine, NBC's Weekend Today Show, NPR's Talk of The Nation and All Things Considered. The New York Times video series that accompanies her "Life, Interrupted" column was recently nominated for a DuPont Award. A triple citizen of the US, Switzerland, and Tunisia, Suleika graduated with highest honors from Princeton University in 2010. Shortly after graduation, at age 22, Suleika was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome and acute myeloid leukemia. After almost 2 years of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant this past April she is finally cancer-free. Suleika testifies, "I am often hesitant to answer the Facebook prompt, 'what's on your mind.'" However, with candor and reflective honesty, she has used social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to share her riveting story of making the most of a "life interrupted."
