She is the winner of the Aurora Borealis Award in 2021 from the Society for the Advancement of Scandinavian Study for best graduate student paper in Language and Literature for the paper “’Welcome to my Body’: Construction of Racialized Identity through the Transgressing of Boundaries in Jonas Hassen Khemiri’s work”.
