Student Media Welcomes Jordanian IREX Fellow
Please join Student Media in welcoming Mohammad Abdallah Khamis, a visiting fellow from Jordan, to the Mason community! Khamis is currently an independent screenwriter and producer participating in Community Solutions, a leadership development program that helps place visiting fellows with host institutions in the United States in partnership with IREX (International Research & Exchanges Board) and the U.S. Department of State.
Khamis joined Student Media in early August and brings with him many years of experience in media production and social media marketing. Most recently a content writer and producer at Kharabeesh, Khamis started his career in media as a reporter with UNESCO documenting youth educational activities at the Embassy of France in Sudan. He has also worked with UNICEF and several organizations in Malaysia, where he worked for more than 13 years in the event management industry.
Upon completion of his practicum, Khamis plans to continue his work empowering talented youth in Jordan to produce creative content that spreads the values of tolerance, peace, democracy, violence prevention and conflict resolution.
Guest Speaker: Journalist Peter Copeland
Student Media was proud to welcome author and journalist Peter Copeland as a special guest speaker on Friday, October 11th. His latest book, Finding the News: Adventures of a Young Reporter, was a perfect jumping-off point for a fascinating and thoughtful group discussion about journalism’s past and future with student editors and staff.
Copeland’s extensive work with newspapers, wire services, magazines, cable television networks, broadcast television stations, and digital platforms made him the perfect guest speaker to share career insights and inspiring stories with our aspiring media professionals. Throughout his 40-year career Copeland served as Washington bureau chief of the E.W. Scripps Company, editor and general manager of Scripps Howard News Service, a Pentagon correspondent, a foreign correspondent based in Mexico City, and a night police reporter at the City News Bureau of Chicago, just to name a few.
Many thanks to Peter Copeland and #FallfortheBook!
