Raja Moussaoui

Raja is an architectural designer who grew up filling her sketchbook with notes. During the Fellowship, Raja covered urban development for the Toronto Star, CBC News, The Dallas Morning News and Spacing Magazine. After graduating, she won a commission to produce documentaries on Canadian architecture and has written for The Atlantic Magazine’s Cities website while continuing her architectural practice.

“The faculty works on shaping your professional personality with you. Having that support for eight months is extraordinary. The key thing was real training in entrepreneurialism. There are lots of organizations that need journalism skills outside of traditional news organizations. The Fellowship teaches you how to think outside the box. It was reasonably easy to transition from the program to the real world.”
