Aleksandra Corwin (née Kulczuga) is an award-winning journalist and freelance writer. She has reported extensively from around the world, with a particular focus on troubled hot zones like Afghanistan and Burma. Her work has appeared in a wide variety of publications including the Wall Street Journal, Foreign Policy Magazine, and Forbes. She specializes in interviewing smart people on esoteric subjects, and then trying to make sense of it all. She is also an accomplished speechwriter and ghostwriter, with a specialty in historical and spiritual narratives.
She recently completed a yearlong Robert Novak journalism fellowship with the Phillips Foundation on the role of the Polish military in the war on terror. The Phillips foundation is a non-profit organization that provides this grant to allow promising young journalists the opportunity to pursue original, independent research on a topic of their choosing – the main guideline being that the project support the values of a free society. When she left her job at The Daily Caller in Washington D.C., Media Bistro posted this write-up of her acceptance speech at the National Press Club:
“She has won a Phillips Foundation grant to study Poland’s involvement in Afghanistan and the countries’ close relationship to the U.S. on the War on Terror. Former Defense Sec. Donald Rumsfeld gave her high praise Tuesday night at a Phillips Foundation dinner where she spoke. Rumsfeld gave her no less than a standing ovation at the end of her speech. Watch him pop up (solo!) at the end of the short YouTube clip below.”Media Bistro
