Faten Bushehri · September, 2015

I am a freelance producer & multimedia journalist from Bahrain with an undeniable urge to defend rights and stand up for justice. I have a BA in journalism and a MA in media and politics. I believe in the power of storytelling and i love visual communication. For several years I have also been a public speaker on different topics like framing in the media and the impact of new media on human rights. I am starting a Youtube channel discussing the challenges and benefits of being in an interracial relationship, and will tackle topics like gender role, race, cultural differences, identity and more. . You can follow the project on Instagram and Youtube.
