I’m based in the UK and I have over a decade’s experience as a journalist, covering social issues and women’s rights for outlets including The Economist, The Washington Post, The Financial Times, and Reuters. I currently cover mothers’ rights and their careers for the specialist website workingmums.co.uk.
During my journalism career, I’ve worked as a reporter and photographer in four continents, and also as a news editor and sub-editor in London. 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.
Since 2016, I’ve also built a specialism in gathering in-depth case studies for NGOs – I’ve worked for organisations such as ActionAid, Crisis, 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.
