Egyptian Newsroom Team

We are trained at the American University in Cairo (AUC), set to receive our Bachelors in Multimedia Journalism or Communication and Media Arts. We are skilled writers, researchers, reporters, and editors. We also consistently utilize multimedia elements in our reporting which made us masterful at photography, audio, video, and overall visual communication. We get most of our professional training at the Caravan, AUC’s official student newspaper, and through various practical projects under the guidance of the Journalism and Mass Communications Department.

Bassel Hanna

I'm a journalism student at AUC, minoring in both writing and psychology. I worked as a reporter for a semester at The Caravan, the AUC student newspaper, and it's fair to say that it was my most enjoyable time at university. I'm passionate about bringing stories to people that would otherwise remain unheard.
