Kholood is interested in exploring the relationship between individual and group identity, the concept of “Home,” the ever-shifting social and political makeup of the Middle East, gender-based issues, mental illness and the aftermath of trauma.

Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNN, Lifetime, Bloomberg, Reuters, ESPN’s The Undefeated, the Phoenix New Times and a variety of Midwestern publications, with video editing for TIME.com and VSCO.
