Hi, I'm Aysha Khan.
I’m a journalist based in Boston. My work examines religion, digital culture and underrepresented communities — with a focus on the lives of Muslims in America.
These days I report on U.S. Muslims and millennial spirituality at Religion News Service, an award-winning, non-profit news wire that's partnered with the Associated Press. I've filed stories from London to Las Vegas, covering federal anti-extremism programs, Muslim women confronting spiritual abuse, a Uighur woman battling for her father's release from detention in China, and Muslim-led bail funds.
I've held fellowships with the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, Muslim Women & the Media Training Institute, and Journalism & Women Symposium. My reporting has won awards from the South Asian Journalists Association and the Religion News Association.
