Founder, Media Challenge Initiative
Abaas is the Founder of the Media Challenge Initiative, a non-profit building the next generation of journalists, storytellers and leaders through mentorship, training and peer to peer learning. He is also the creative brain behind the Inter-institutional Media Challenge and Media Challenge Awards – events dedicated to journalism excellence and providing young journalists a platform to practice and celebrate their skills.
The fellowship has been helpful in creating strategic connection with like minded people who have become my new sound boards for new ideas.
I have developed my new programming at Media Challenge Initiative because of the experience attained from YELP
