We have two great new people contributing to the Tumblr and helping us behind the scenes with some new projects we’re planning to launch.
By way of London comes John Johnston. John’s a video producer at Huffington Post Media Group UK, where he films, edits and helps to publish all UK video content. Before the Huffington Post, John lived and studied in Scotland, where he interned at places such as the city daily paper Edinburgh Evening News and events guide The List. After university, he interned at the Washington Post during one of DC’s most tumultuous summers before returning to London. As well as his work at the Huffington Post, John also freelances for a number of publications in both online and print worlds.
And shoring up World Headquarters here in New York is Jihii Jolly.
Jihii is a new FJP intern focussing on editorial production and social community development.
Last Spring Jihii graduated from Soka University of America, a sunny little California school determined to foster contributive global citizens. There, she was editor of The Pearl Student News Magazine for three years, which lead to her passion for journalism, Buddhism, technology, and how they all connect. She’s now in NYC and is working on freelance documentary, writing, and music projects.
A big and very warm welcome to both John and Jihii. We’re psyched that they’ve come on board to add their unique perspectives to the FJP.
