A freelance journalist and Editor based in Barcelona. My areas of focus are human rights, gender equality and women’s rights, development, and human stories.
For as long as I can remember, I would write things. I would write my dreams, my recollections, my political views. Everything I thought of, I would write down. I thought writing made everyone feel like it made me feel: free.
My interest in international issues and a vision of a more stable world brought me to study international development and relations at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London. Immediately, I developed a particular interest in gender and human rights. I went on to study Transnational Communications and Global Media at Golsdmiths (London), as I wanted to merge communication with development work. I then moved to Kenya for two years where I worked in a United Nations agency. I later returned to Europe where I worked for Amnesty International, Oxfam and Results UK. Although I loved the work , I wanted to tell the world about the stories I came across and the people I met . I wanted to write.
So I began a career in freelance journalism and have so far written for The Guardian, Al Jazeera and Devex. I have interviewed some amazing people, from human rights activists, to humanitarian experts, to truly inspiring women. I am also Managing Editor of Words in the Bucket, a non profit platform for citizen journalists from all over the world, to discuss human rights, gender, environment, and international development related topics.
Working for United Nations as well as NGOs including Amnesty International and Oxfam has given me an insight to the world I now write about.
My words are in Devex, The Guardian and Al Jazeera.
