I'm Ameena Rasheed, a native Houstonian and digital content strategist who excels at both online storytelling and social media management.
After working in the news industry for a little over three years, I decided to transition into higher education. Currently, I am a social media coordinator at the University of Houston.
In 2016, I was selected to participate in the inaugural class of the Poynter-NABJ Leadership Academy for Diversity in Digital Media program. My byline has graced the pages of the Des Moines Register, Houston Chronicle and Houston Press.
In 2013, I graduated magna cum laude from Texas Southern University, where I earned an undergraduate degree in journalism and served as the editor-in-chief of the university's official student newspaper.
Outside of work, you can find me either visiting museums, going to concerts or watching a good basketball game. Speaking of which, I am highly interested in any freelance or volunteer opportunities that would allow me to write articles and produce social media content while I'm in those places.
