Growing up in New York City, Zahra first became interested in journalism when an article she wrote in high school was published in Newsday, a daily New York newspaper. That’s when she decided she wanted a career in journalism. Zahra studied English with a minor in Print Journalism for a year at a college in New York, but then in 2002 her family moved to Michigan. Zahra transferred to the University of Michigan-Dearborn where she continued with the same major and minor.  At the University, she was President of the Society of Journalists and Secretary of Student Government. Zahra graduated in 2005, and was hired into WWJ in August of 2008.”
