Dedicated to reporting the world’s untold stories, Paschyn is available for reporting projects in the Middle East and beyond. She is the founder of Paschyn Productions, a documentary film company specializing in social justice, human rights, gender, religious issues, and historical documentaries in both observational and expository mode. Paschyn wrote, shot and directed the documentary film, “A Struggle for Home: The Crimean Tatars.” The film chronicles the rich and often tragic history of the Crimean Tatar people, the Muslim-Turkic indigenous population of the Crimean Peninsula, from ancient times to the aftermath of the 2014 Russian annexation of the peninsula. It premiered at the Al Jazeera International Documentary Film Festival in November 2015 and has since played in multiple film festivals and professional venues, including the European Parliament in Brussels and the Wilson Center’s Kennan Institute in Washington, D.C. It has won several awards, including Best International Film at the DC Independent Film Festival in March 2016, Best Documentary at the Poppy Jasper International Film Festival in April 2016, and 1st place Short Foreign Documentary at the Indie Gathering International Film Festival in August 2016. Both Al Jazeera and Axess TV purchased the film for broadcast in 2016. Paschyn, MS and MA, is an assistant professor of journalism in residence at Northwestern University in Qatar. She has reported for major news organizations across the globe, including the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, TIME.com in London, E News in Johannesburg and KVRR-TV as the station’s congressional correspondent in Washington, D.C. In her work as a journalist, Paschyn has covered a variety of under-reported issues, such as Qatari women’s education and employment, education policies in the GCC, deteriorating press freedom in Ukraine, net neutrality, and the Chernobyl nuclear disaster anniversary and its relevance to the Fukushima nuclear crisis. She delivered live shots and interviews about the rocket strikes on Be’er Sheva, Israel, during the 2009 Gaza War for multiple news outlets, including WEWS News Channel 5 in Cleveland. Her video work also has appeared on CNN and Euronews and her writing has been published by the New York Times, the Christian Science Monitor, the Huffington Post, Women’s eNews, Chime for Change, Al-Fanar Media and in THINK. Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar (Arabia), Cosmopolitan magazine (Middle East edition) and the Chicago Journal, among other publications. She is skilled in Adobe Premiere CC, Final Cut Pro X and 7, Avid, Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, ENPS and more. Paschyn earned a Master’s of Arts in Middle East Studies at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in 2009 while on a year-long Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship to Israel and Palestine. There, she volunteered as an English tutor and video producer for Step Forward, an NGO working to empower the Bedouin population in the city of Rahat. In 2007, she simultaneously earned bachelor and master’s of science degrees in broadcast journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University through its Accelerated Master’s Degree Program. Also as an undergraduate, she studied abroad at the American University in Cairo, where she focused on refugee rights and mentored Sudanese refugees. Paschyn was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. She is of Ukrainian descent and speaks the language.
