Sahar Habib Ghazi

Hi there! I experiment with strategies to facilitate and support our unique, borderless community and completely virtual newsroom. I also help craft editorial and social media policies, plan special coverage and manage partnerships.

When I am editing or writing, I focus on countering false or incomplete narratives about the people and places we tell stories about. I want to build bridges through our reporting. For me, powerful stories are accurate, engaging, nuanced, and have context.

Before joining this amazing community in 2012, I worked as a journalist in Pakistan where I covered war, elections, earthquakes, floods, human smuggling, and kidney tourism, always searching for hope in my storytelling. In 2006, I helped launch the country's first English language TV station. In 2009, I produced a TV series on US-Pakistan relations, called the Disposable Ally. I was a Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford University in 2011; there I explored creating citizen-generated content for mainstream media in Pakistan through Hosh media. You can find me at airports with my four-year old daughter Nava, while I'm hopping between my two homes – Pakistan and San Francisco, or on Twitter @SaharHGhazi.
