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.

Khamis’ latest film, Morning of the Night, premiered in Jordan in 2019 and the U.S. debut is scheduled for Friday, November 15th in the Johnson Center Cinema (click here to learn more and RSVP).
