Hello! My name is Ida Sophie Winter. I am a public life reporter at the Columbia Missourian and student at the Missouri School of Journalism. Along with journalism, I am working towards Bachelors of Arts in International Studies and French, and am also studying German and Arabic. In the 2014/15 academic year, I explored Morocco as a Boren Scholar at Al Akhawayn University and Critical Languages Scholar in Tangier.
After working for the NGO High Atlas Foundation in Morocco and New York City last semester, I am returning to the University of Missouri to complete my studies.
Eventually, I hope to work against gender-based violence as a correspondent or Foreign Service Officer.
My work has appeared in Al-Fanar Media, NOW Lebanon, Your Middle East and the World Policy Blog, among other news outlets. Please contact me through this site if you have any questions, are interested in my freelance work or would like to see my resume.
