ABOUT

 

I’m a self-shooting visual and radio journalist currently reporting, presenting and producing radio news and videos for BBC World Service.

My original journalism reports and investigations have been featured on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, From Our Own Correspondent, Victoria Derbyshire programme, BBC 6 o'clock TV news, BBC World Service's OS and World Update programmes, BBC Radio 4's Beyond Today podcast, and the BBC News website's front page, Instagram and Video of the Day.

Specialist interests of mine include women’s rights and health; gender violence; issues affecting young people across the world; UK local government issues including universal credit, housing and council funding; trolling and digital trends & culture. I care a lot about making news exciting and accessible for young audiences – and work with the BBC’s Executive Committee to reinvent our content and platforms for the next generation.

I was previously a journalist at BBC 100 Women, multimedia journalist at BBC Wales, freelance journalist for BBC Radio 4’s PM & BBC Political Newsgathering and BBC Journalism Trainee. My writing has been published by the Guardian, Evening Standard, Metro, BBC, The Independent, Channel 4 News, The Telegraph, The Times, The Debrief, The Madurai Messenger, and The AIDS Legal Network. _________________________________________________________
