Akbar Ahmed

Akbar is a journalism intern with Campus Progress. A rising junior at Yale majoring in Global Affairs, Akbar is a reporter with the Yale Daily News and has previously written for a number of publications in Pakistan, most recently Newsline magazine. He wishes everyone were just a little more angry and loud and tries to make them that way by reporting on student activism and organizing students as advocacy chair of the Yale Hunger and Homelessness Action Project. Being from Pakistan, Akbar is interested in analyzing how domestic U.S. policy intersects with international developments, and hopes to explore the subject through long-form journalism or an advanced degree post-graduation.
