Kloub-MohammedI am a journalist with a passion for politics, history, music, and culture — but above all the intersections of all four. The majority of my work has been either in news reporting or cultural criticism, and I remain committed to improving my skills in both.

Writing was my first home in journalism, but I soon grew to enjoy editing and managing thanks to my role as the 2016-17 Editor-In-Chief of The Daily, the University of Washington’s student newspaper. There I worked hard to guide a 125-year-old publication through a sorely needed digital transition, which meant an increased focus on web and multimedia content as we shifted from a daily print product to a twice-a-week one. While my journalism career is still in its early stages, I am interested in eventually returning to the editing side of storytelling.

I recently graduated with my journalism degree from the University of Washington, and I am currently a breaking news intern at The Chicago Tribune for autumn 2017. In addition to The Daily, my work has been published in The StrangerCrosscut, The Seattle Globalist, South Seattle EmeraldFederal Way Mirror, and The Jordan Times.
