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 have over a decade’s experience as a journalist, writing 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 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.

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.
