Mahreen Khan studies Journalism and Psychology at Stony Brook University, where she is avidly engaged in inspiring change and encouraging awareness through her reporting.
As a student journalist in her junior year, Khan serves as assistant news editor of her university publication, The Statesman. Khan has been part of the Statesman team since her freshman year of undergrad in 2014, while maintaining the honor of being named to the Dean’s List each semester.
The New York native served as a freelance reporter for The Sag Harbor Express and its affiliate Express Magazine in 2015. She went on to intern with Hamptons Magazine in the summer of 2016, and in that same summer launched a newspaper activity featuring the student-produced publication, The Haygrounder, at Bridgehampton’s Hayground Camp.
Khan’s focus lies in giving voice to the silenced and oppressed, and in chronicling day-to-day adventures and observations through an even-keeled lens.
