Tia Chevasson

Events and Programming Assistant

Tia Chevasson joined the British Omani Society in June 2024, following her graduation from the University of Edinburgh with a First-Class MA in Arabic & Politics and a distinction in spoken Arabic. 

Her dissertation focused on the ongoing security issues in the Gulf of Aden, with a particular emphasis on the Yemeni island of Socotra. Additionally, Tia spent her year abroad at the American University in Cairo, where she completed an intensive course in Egyptian dialect and Modern Standard Arabic.

Tia has maintained a lifelong connection to the Middle East, particularly the Gulf region, having lived in Dubai, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Oman. She holds dual citizenship (French and British) and is bilingual.

Interested in diplomatic affairs, Tia was elected to represent the American University of Cairo during a week-long conference focused on refugees' rights at the UN headquarters in New York. 

In her spare time, she enjoys photography, capturing her extensive travels through her lens, and was the youngest winner of the Franco-Omani photography competition.
