About Nisha

I am a freelance writer and digital strategist living in Washington, DC. I write about media, politics, and international affairs, and my work has been featured in The American Prospect, Ms. Magazine, WashingtonPost.com, Mediaite, Politics Daily, and NPR.org. I was previously an editor of CitizenJanePolitics.com, where I reported on the 2008 presidential elections.

I have a BA from the University of Illinois, where I studied political science and Middle Eastern studies.

Also, fun obligatory disclaimers! I work at a digital strategy firm, but, the opinions on this blog are mine and mine only, not my employer’s. Also, I have NO affiliation with the similarly named publication, Politico and the title of my blog should not confuse anyone into believing as such.

  1. Hi Nisha,
    I just discovered your blog via a link on The Schiff Report. Nice work. I will have to continue reading, which won’t happen today, but I loved you most recent post about Obama. It’s so nice to have a clear-headed president! Anyway, I look forward to reading more, but it’s always great to discover intelligent young voices. I’d love for you to check out, and consider posting on, my blog, Millennial Voices. It’s at http://millennialvoice.com and it aims to be a collection of essays by articulate and thoughtful Gen Yers.

  2. Hi Lilly — will definitely check it out. Thanks!

  3. Congratulations on your Top 10 placement on Ryan Stephens Marketing Blog!

  4. Hi Nisha,

    I stumbled upon your blog by sheer chance and I read your article on Obama and let me start by saying that you write very well and yes I was overjoyed when Obama said that we are a nation of Christians and Moslems, Jews and Hindus and non believers. It made a special connection with me.

    Look forward to reading more of your writings.

  5. I was looking for ways to self promote myself and my new novel and found your blog. I must say I actually agree with your blog about women and self promoting. I’m doing all my shyness (smiley face) can handle. I do know, however, that in order to get out into the big leagues, I need to self promote. You are right! It’s so damn hard. But I digress.. I just subscribed to your blog and look forward to reading your words.
