Her commentary has been featured on The Daily Show, all major news networks, and in The New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone and Essence Magazine. Together with Jose Antonio Vargas, Alicia Menendez, and Jake Brewer, Jehmu co-founded Define American to elevate the immigration conversation.
