Recently I caught up with Atiya Abbas, a Pakistani Fulbright student in the Missouri School of Journalism’s Magazine sequence, on her way to the school’s Vox magazine. In her sequence Abbas is learning how to use HTML, post photos and design stories to fit a magazine format.
“(At Vox,) we have to be creative and come up with stories of our own. I think it’s great that Vox does that,” said Abbas.
She hopes that skills learned at Vox will eventually enable her to start a career advice-focused magazine for young girls in Pakistan.
She also hopes to include movie and book reviews to show young girls how pop culture affects their lives.
