Hi, I’m Ameena Rasheed.
I’m currently the online editor for Juice magazine, a weekly entertainment and lifestyle publication from The Des Moines Register, through Gannett’s Talent Development Program. I oversee the content on all of Juice’s online and social media platforms. I also curate and organize content for The Des Moines Register’s “Things To Do” section front on its desktop, mobile, and tablet platforms. At times, I edit copy for Juice magazine’s print publication. Sometimes I make fun of crappy press releases on Tumblr.
In 2013, I graduated from Texas Southern University with an undergraduate degree in journalism. I was the editor-in-chief of the official student newspaper during the 2012-2013 academic school year. In the past, my work has been published in the Houston Chronicle (entertainment and fashion) and Houston Press.
I’m really passionate about creating online content and strategies that help newsrooms connect with audiences across multiple platforms.
