Hi, I am Christina

(Felschen), a journalist (and photographer) in Vancouver, B.C. I work for various newspapers, magazines, and radio stations. Originally from Germany, I have been living and working in North America since 2014, first in California, then in New York City, before moving to Canada.

I tell global stories about social change, migration, and human rights from a local perspective. Before moving to North America, I worked in Marseille, Buenos Aires, and on the world’s oceans (for the Japanese NGO Peace Boat). I have a Master’s degree in Comparative Literature, French, and Social Anthropology from the Universities of Göttingen and Strasbourg, and trained in cross-media journalism at the EJS School of Journalism in Berlin and the New York Film Academy.

My documentaries have been nominated for and won journalism awards. I am a language nerd but only comfortable working in four of them: English, German, Spanish and French. In regular shifts at ZEIT ONLINE‘s newsdesk, podcast, and newsletter, I keep European night owls up to date with world news while the sun is still shining on the West Coast.
