Whenever someone working in strategy or marketing says, “I just want to do work that has more meaning,” Malaka’s face is one of the faces that rushes through my head as an example of someone who is building a life and career around meaning.
After a flirtation with the music industry and the agency world, Malaka has spent much of her career writing about some of the most challenging topics our world confronts – conflict and poverty.
Based in Washington D.C., Malaka has worked for ONE.ORG, the Malala Fund, and is now an editor at NPR.
She is also working on a graphic novel “I Was Their American Dream,” in which she’s capturing stories about growing up in some fourth dimension straddling Egypt, America, and the Philippines.
