Before joining Oakland North's news team as a crime beat reporter, Amina worked on various community-based programs in Chicago’s inner-city. Her work connecting urban, immigrant and indigenous communities around issues such as criminal justice reform, inspired her to document global grassroots movements through visual storytelling. Amina was born and raised in an American oil-town in Saudi Arabia, and later moved to the Midwest as an Indian-Canadian immigrant. Her reporting interests in urban and international affairs led her to spend several months backpacking across the Middle East and North Africa. When she’s not crossing borders, she can be found satiating her musical appetite in drumming cyphers.
