Best Journalist – Kainaz Amaria
Bay Area Zarathushtis & ZANC members would be pleased to learn that Kainaz Amaria of Foster City,Calif. (niece of Ervard Kobad Jamsheed) was presented with the BEST JOURNALIST AWARD by the President.
While full details are awaited here are her two pictures with President in the Oval Office.
Congratulation to her and the parents Dhun & Yezdi also.
Earlier this year Kainaz Amaria, supervising editor for the NPR Visuals team, accepted the White House News Photographer’s Association for first place in the Innovation category for Planet Money Makes A T-Shirt, a story produced for National Public Radio that uniquely chronicles the hidden world behind clothes sold in the United States.

“It was a thrill to meet the President and represent NPR,” said Kainaz. “When I started out as a budding photojournalist I never imagined that moments like these were possible. I’m very lucky to love what I do and to be able to work with extremely talented people.”
Also, none of this, would be possible if it wasn’t for the support and love of my family. They made it possible for me to dream big!
