Silma Suba, Graduate Fellowship

Graduate Fellowship, 2018

Silma Suba received a B.S. in journalism and a Certificate in Integrated Marketing Communications in 2016 from Northwestern in Qatar, where she was editor-in-chief of the Daily Q.  She is fluent in four languages and is as adept at digital platforms and social media as she is in traditional print media. Silma has won prizes for poetry and journalism, most notably, the Best Journalistic Writing award for a story about a portable school for Afghan refugees, published while she was in a journalism residency at the Pulitzer Center in Washington, D.C. Silma has traveled a long road from Bangladesh to Qatar to Evanston, where she will begin studies for her Masters in Journalism at Medill this fall (2018).
