Former WORD Writer Pens Piece for Huffington Post

Click here for Aida Alami’s Is There Life After New York.

Quickie AA bio:

Grew up in Marrakech in Morocco. Got BA in Media Studies in 2007 and Masters in Journalism from Columbia University in 2009. Afte Hunter in 2007, worked for a year as a researcher for the ABC news show, Good Morning America.

At Hunter, worked with non-profit organizations on campus, such as the American Cancer Society to organize the annual Relay for Life, and fought on behalf of Hunter with NYPIRG against tuition hikes.

Created a student newspaper, The WORD Print,* that followed the tradition of a community newspaper, giving students who were eager to learn about journalism an opportunity to be involved in a serious, news-oriented publication.

In college, also interned for the ABC Evening News in New York City in 2006.

*Affiliated with but was independently student-run. Bit the dust about a year after Alami graduated from Hunter. She was the driving force.  It had a lot of promise. It also was a source of a lot aggravation for the anti-WORD forces in D:F/M. And that means a post real soon to explain.
