Mounira Al Hmoud is a Washington D.C.-based news reporter and producer for Francophone and Anglophone media in Washington D.C. Her current work includes following the 2016 presidential candidates on the campaign trail for French news channel Canal Plus / I-tele.
After graduating from The American University of Paris in 2011, she moved to the U.S. to study political reporting at Boston University’s College of Communication. And because it was quite impossible to travel to the U.S. without going to its nation’s capital, she ended up falling in love with Washington D.C. and became a freelance news reporter and producer.
She is fully bilingual in French and English and has a conversational level in Spanish and Arabic. What she enjoys the most in her work is human and social interaction, as well as breaking down complex stories through their impact on real people. And yes, she does get out of the Beltway for that.
In 2012, she covered the Massachusetts Legislature as the statehouse correspondent for the MetroWest Daily News and the Vermont delegation in the U.S. Congress in D.C. for the Barre-Monpelier Times Argus, when Senator Bernie Sanders was not an object of curiosity amongst Millenials and still available for interviews. She has written for The National Law Journal / Legal Times and was a multimedia editor intern at the French international news agency Agence France-Presse in 2014.
Her work in Paris included an internship at a major multilingual news channel, France24, and an online magazine at Glamourparis.com. While in Boston, she contributed to The Christian Science Monitor‘s Science section and to the largest francophone magazine in the U.S., France-Amérique.
