Hi! I'm Mina, a freelance journalist currently based in New Zealand. While I hold experience writing about a range of topics, my main areas of interest include ethical consumerism and social change. I have worked as the head writer and sub-editor of Renovate Magazine and have contributed to publications such as Eluxe Magazine, Noted, Education Today, Tots to Teens Magazine, Your Zen Life and more.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English from Massey University as well as a certificate in Professional Freelance Journalism through the Morris Journalism Academy. I have also studied creative writing through Brown University's continuing education program, and hold a Certificate in Children's Rights ("Child Protection: Children's Rights in Theory and Practise") through HarvardX.

Through my writing, I hope to inspire readers from a variety of backgrounds to live consciously and to be aware of their contribution to the world around them. I am particularly interested in working with NGOs, non-profits, conscious businesses and publications who focus on social change. If this sounds like you, please get in touch.
