Ifrah Jimale

Ifrah Jimale, a management aide for Minneapolis Public Housing Authority, was awarded the ThreeSixty Scholarship in 2004. She has previously worked for Common Bond. She has won awards for her column work with Twin Cities Daily Planet. As the only college graduate in her family, Ifrah credits ThreeSixty with allowing her to pursue her dream of a college degree. “It is like I went to three schools to teach me about journalism. My high school introduced me to journalism and I got a degree from St. Thomas, but my biggest involvement, the activities and academic part of professional journalism, came from ThreeSixity curriculum. It was ThreeSixty that took us to tour the StarTribune newsroom, KARE 11 and let us watch anchors of WCCO do their evening news live. We met many reporters and had mentors. It was like ThreeSixty filled the gaps that schools didn’t think about.”
