I’m Mounira Al Hmoud, a Washington D.C.-based news reporter and producer for Francophone and Anglophone media in Washington D.C. My current work includes being on the campaign trail for French news channel Canal Plus and I-tele.
After graduating from The American University of Paris in 2011, I moved to the U.S. to study political reporting at Boston University’s College of Communication. And because you can’t really come to the U.S. without going to its nation’s capital, I decided to become a freelance news reporter and producer in Washington D.C. I’m fully bilingual in French and English and have a conversational level in Spanish and Arabic. What I enjoy the most in my work is human and social interaction, as well as breaking down complex stories through their impact on real people. And yes, I do try to get out of the Beltway for that.
In 2012, I 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 and still available for interviews. I have 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.
My work in Paris included an internship at a major news channel, France24, and an online magazine at Glamourparis.com. While in Boston, I contributed to The Christian Science Monitor‘s Science section and to the largest francophone magazine in the U.S., France-Amérique.
