Journalism with Tyrone Beason and Alicia Quiñones
I was born and raised in Jeddah, the Arabian Peninsula. I’ve been living in New York City since 2008 after receiving the United Nations Dag Hammarskjöld Journalism Fellowship. I’m interested in human rights journalism that focuses on the stories of women, youth and minorities. I have written in both English and Arabic. I look forward to learning from Tyrone and Alicia how to explain and investigate complex topics through the lives of ordinary people.
My Criterion channel subscription has been saving my soul throughout this pandemic. I am a novice plant mom. I’m slowly learning Spanish and hope to be a trilingual by the end of the year, ojalá / Inshallah.
