From the Earth's lowest elevation on land ruled by a 43rd generation descendant of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), to the land of Uhuru na Umoja (Freedom and Unity), to the apex of the Sun and the Moon, and his native home the City of Wind, Alonso Avila now finds himself in the Midwest's City of Literature, Iowa City.
Alonso Avila is a graduate from Coe College and the University of Illinois' School of Information Sciences (not to be confused with the School of Hard Knocks). He is interested in popular culture, especially international hip-hop, and social justice topics. After spending two years in Peace Corps Jordan (2009-2011), Alonso is also interested in the Middle East (music, food, culture, etc.) and Islam.
Alonso Avila is currently in his third and final year at the University of Iowa's Main Library.
