Hi! I’m Aysha Jamali. I am a storyteller, builder, and guide in the social change ecosystem, with a particular interest in communications strategy and movement building.
I love words and language, a passion I can trace back to growing up as a first-generation immigrant, both Muslim and South Asian, wanting to speak and write English perfectly so no one could claim I was not American enough. Despite knowing now that acceptance is not what I’m looking for, I have continued my love for words and language and turned it into a career in communications.
I worked as a community journalist for three years in Southeast Michigan before transitioning into nonprofit and movement communications, where I have been for six years. I enjoy creating content from complicated concepts and research and experimenting with new media, audience engagement, and evolving forms of storytelling.
