Jihii is a journalist focusing mainly on media, culture and religion. She's especially interested in the growing news literacy education movement, which she has covered for the Columbia Journalism Review
. Most of her free time is spent on the FJP Media Lab
, a project she's been collaboratively slow-cooking for the past few years to explore nontraditional ways to create & consume the news. The eventual goal is to open a news cafe that's a fusion between maker/learning/entertainment spaces. (You can follow the FJP blog, where we curate journalism, tech, media and culture news, here
!) She graduated from Soka University of America, where she studied the humanities, and Columbia's Graduate School of Journalism.
