Christy Khoshaba '11: Reporter

Christy Khoshaba graduated with a concentration in Journalism and Media Studies in 2011. At CSUMB she was the HCOM Peer Advisor and assisted over 120 students with class schedules. She went on to UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. At Berkeley, Christy traveled to China and produced a mini documentary on the Chinese college entrance exam which was featured on the front page of The New York Times as well as other videos for The Washington Post. The roots of her reporting go back to The Otter Realm. “It gave me confidence in print reporting and furthered my appetite for journalism,” Christy says. The information she gained within her courses also made an impact. “I learned about media studies, gender studies, law, literature, activism and history while noting the importance of empathy,” she says. “That knowledge has provided me with a primer I use today within my own class discussions and when I’m out reporting.” She adds: “I encourage students to pick this major for its thoughtful curriculum, its flexibility in countless courses, and its supportive professors who will be there for you beyond graduation.”
