Kamelia Kilawan: research from the student’s perspective
Kamelia concentrated on Journalism and Religious Studies. Her research question began with her curiousity about the thread that binds the City’s ethnic communities and wanted to use her thesis to strengthen her research skills as a journalist. She won the CUNY Thomas Tam Prize, the Susan A. Locke Outstanding Honors Student Award, and attended Columbia’s graduate journalism program.
