Hi! I’m Kaja. I’m a freelance journalist in the Middle East and North Africa. I studied journalism in the Netherlands, received my MA in Islamic and Middle Eastern studies in Jerusalem and stayed in Israel and the Palestinian territories for an additional 2 years to work as a freelance journalist and a producer at i24NEWS. Between August 2019 and March 2020 I was based out of Morocco where I worked as a freelance correspondent, but I’m currently back home in the Netherlands due to the coronavirus. Like most of us, I’m completely unsure of what the future will bring (not just because of corona), but I’m excited to start working on new projects, whatever and wherever they may be.
