BIO

I’m a BBC journalist covering Birmingham and the West Midlands, and I have a particular interest in stories about motherhood and women’s rights. I’ve previously written for outlets including The Economist, The Washington Post, The Financial Times, Reuters, and the specialist website workingmums.co.uk.

During my journalism career, I’ve worked as a reporter and photographer in the UK, the USA, Nigeria, and India. I won the Washington Post’s Laurence Stern fellowship in 2011. My photography series about British imams launched with an exhibition in London in 2018.

I’ve also built a specialism in gathering in-depth case studies for NGOs, with clients including ActionAid and Refugee Week. I’m skilled in safeguarding and mentoring people to tell their own stories, and I have experience in managing junior team members.
