Multimedia journalist in Washington, D.C.
I am a writer with extensive international experience that stems from my innate curiosity about the current global political climate and how it affects people, especially those of the marginalized communities. I graduated in September with an M.S. in journalism from Northwestern University, where I specialized in magazine reporting.
In Chicago, I reported on issues concerning immigration and asylum seekers, the growth of LGBTQ fashion and the influence of immigrants on local desserts. I also traveled to South Africa on a travel grant from Medill to report on youth unemployment in Johannesburg, South Africa.
As a national security reporter in Washington, D.C., I reported on Capitol Hill on veteran affairs, foreign policy, technology, and the local economy. During the summer, I interned part-time for the Military Times. I am also a Summer/Fall fellow at the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation.
In 2017, I traveled to the Netherlands. I reported on businesses started by refugees from Syria, Iraq and different parts of Africa, and wrote about their contribution to the host community. The stories were published as a book, "Refugee Changemakers."
