Ghazala Irshad

News Editor

Ghazala is a long-roving wordsmith, unapologetic feminist and a meme queen. She's returned to her hometown of Chicago to work at Newsy after years of reporting on revolutions and refugees in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. She’s passionate about holding people in power accountable, passing the mic to the disadvantaged, and using innovative ways to engage viewers with the news. When she’s not poring over political and grammatical atrocities at work, she stays sane by experimenting with art, cooking, or checking out comedy or live music shows.
