Aspiring Journalist Yasmin Khorram '09 Translates Language Skills into an Opportunity

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Whittier College senior Yasmin Khorram is gaining coveted ground as a CNN intern this summer. Khorram, a fluent Farsi speaker, has been working closely with the West Coast news crew to cover breaking news surrounding the Iranian elections. 

"The violence towards the protestors in Iran right now is horrific, but it is clearly giving me an amazing opportunity to lend my skills, knowledge, and own history to my internship," said Khorram. "The newsroom is constantly asking for my assistance with this rapidly developing story."
