About

Amal Ahmed

I'm currently a student at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, pursuing minors in environmental policy and Middle East and North African studies.

I have always loved writing, and as a journalist I love telling people's stories. I love learning new things and meeting people I never would have crossed paths with otherwise.

Currently, I'm a writer and editor for North by Northwestern's website. It's an award-winning, student-run publication which covers all aspects of campus life. I'm also an editor, writer and illustrator for Al Bayan Magazine, the Muslim Student Association's award-winning print magazine.

In the past, I've also written for the Dallas Morning News as a Student Voices columnist, and I spent a year on my high school's newspaper staff. I've even dabbled in coding, and I know enough HTML and CSS to get by.

For more information about my work experience and skills, you can download my resume or visit my LinkedIn profile.
