Maryam Goli Smiling


Maryam Goli is a media and journalism professional from Iran where press freedom is limited, and censorship is prevalent. Maryam pursued undergraduate studies in Persian Miniature Painting and graduated among the top students of the class in 2013. Maryam discovered media and journalism to be a fascinating medium to visualize the world of a young woman in a censored society and graduated from the program with a GPA of 3.54 out of 4. After graduation, Maryam gained media development experience as part of a production team and later moved to Turkey where I worked as an intern at Middle East Images, a leading photo agency. Mayam became media coordinator and content developer for the Net Freedom Pioneers, a California-based nonprofit organization that delivers free rich media packages to marginalized populations with no access to the internet. Maryam is currently pursuing studies in media innovation in journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno and takes great pride in being a member of the Wolfpack community.
