Karmah Elmusa is a first year student at Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism. She was born and bred in Washington, D.C., where she developed an affinity for food, arts, culture, and writing about them. Elmusa graduated from Georgetown University in 2006 with a degree in English. While at Georgetown, Elmusa took all four of the journalism classes the school offered, and minored in Arabic language and Arab Studies to get in closer touch with her Palestinian heritage. After graduation, she worked as a Desk Assistant (read: glorified intern) at The NewsHour and then spent three years as an arts and entertainment editor at The Washington Post’s free daily, Express.
