Suleika Jaouad (pronounced: su-LAKE-uh ja-WAD) is a 23-year-old writer, adventurer and cancer ninja. Her weekly column in the New York Times ‘Well’ section chronicles a young person’s journey with cancer. A video series accompanies the column.

A triple citizen, she hails from New York, Tunisia and Switzerland. Suleika graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University with a B.A. in Near Eastern Studies and certificates in French and Women & Gender Studies. Since graduation, she has been battling an advanced form of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) which, by the time it was diagnosed, had turned into acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Suleika is currently undergoing a bone marrow transplant (her 21-year-old brother, Adam, is her donor). She provides advice and a listening ear to people who are affected by life-threatening illnesses.
