Hi! My name is Kaja Bouman and I'm a freelance journalist based in Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel. I have a Bachelor's degree in Journalism and a Master's degree in Islamic and Middle Eastern studies. I lived in Jerusalem for over a year, which has given me great insights on many aspects of the conflict, but it has also given me the opportunity to get to know other themes such as Israel’s booming tech-hub Tel Aviv or the controversial gay community in Israel as well as in the West Bank. I have experience working on the ground, as I did for my portfolio for journalism school and I have experience working a desk job covering a variety of topics, which I did during my internship at the biggest quality newspaper in the Netherlands, the Volkskrant. Further, I have experience in written articles (both short and longreads), audio and video item and multimedia productions for websites. I'm a native speaker of Dutch and English and look forward to helping you with your project in either of those languages!
