Having received her bachelor’s degree in journalism from Boston University, Selin has been working for five years in Harlem as an independent journalist. Her published work centers around personal and historical narratives, particularly identity, and she is passionate about social justice issues. She received her master’s degree in political journalism and global affairs from Columbia University School of Journalism in 2016. She documented the plight of Syrian refugees in Turkey for the Pulitzer Center, and wrote cultural criticism for the Village Voice and the Paris Review, as well as a long-form historical narrative about a century-past lynching for the Delacorte Review. Selin is passionate about family narratives and their potential to surprise and affect us, as she has researched, interviewed, and written about her own family for years. Her experience with survivors of trauma has informed all of her work, and her approach to any story is one of great respect for the storyteller. In her spare time, she reads, cooks, and runs marathons.
As a Story Terrace writer, Selin interviews customers and turns their life stories into books.
