Zahraa Al Khalisi, an Iraqi national studying at The University of Western Ontario's Masters of Arts in Journalism program in Canada, is the program's first student to intern in the Middle East. Zahraa spent 6 weeks as an intern at Abu Dhabi's daily newspaper: The National. The first assignment was a camel "beauty contest," which isn't unusual in the UAE. After the contest, camels were bought and sold with more than Dh25 million (US$6.8m) changing hands.
