Student at Columbia University
Zoha Qamar, a nineteen-year-old writing to reconcile world news and current events through her eyes as a Muslim-American woman in the 21st century, recently completed freshman year in engineering at Columbia. Through her current position as a staff writer for MuslimGirl.com, Qamar has collaborated with other media platforms such as CNN and TeenVogue. Her past work has additionally been featured in Jezebel and Bitch Media, and she is currently venturing into documentary production in order to cultivate a more holistic exposure within the field of journalism.
Qamar works to continue her pursuit of languages, including Urdu, Arabic, and Turkish, because she believes that communication and expression are the foundational principles that both trigger the catastrophes of and craft the solutions to our humanity.
