Lina Attalah and Naira Antoun
Lina Attalah balances between leading a team of young journalists and being one herself.
As chief editor, she celebrates the individuality of her staff members, encouraging them to find stories that interest them and tell them in their own voices.
Always attempting to experiment and break molds, Lina is known to embrace unconventional story pitches and help develop them into valuable and unique content.
Lina takes every chance to escape the desk and put her journalist cap back on. Her practice has taken her all over the region, often arriving to places at a time that most people are fleeing them.
A poetic thread shines through Lina’s writing even as she deciphers complex social and political news, revealing her ever-present artistic side.
Naira Antou is a writer and editor with Mada, and a maqloubeh and cycling enthusiast.
