I am a Senior Reporter at the daily newspaper Concord Times in Sierra Leone and am presently pursuing a degree in Mass Communications and Journalism in the U.S. My work as a Jourrnalist Trainee caught the attention of editors at the Concord Times in 2002 who selected me for their core staff of reporters. Since then I have been covering breaking news throughout the country as well as conducting in-depth reports on key issues in Sierra Leone such as human rights and women’s health. I gained significant expertise in the practice of journalism by reporting and producing on a daily basis, with great attention to providing unbiased information and supporting the principle of freedom of the speech. I gained a deeper understanding of the standards of fairness, accuracy, and ethics in media by being selected for several international conferences, including the Women Action and the Media (WAM) conference at MIT in the U.S. My work has been recognized with national awards three times by the Independent Media Commission (IMC) of Sierra Leone. I am an active member of many local media organizations, including Women in Media Sierra Leone (WIMSAL). In 2011 I moved to the U.S. to pursue a degree in Mass Communications and Journalism with a special focus on news writing. My career goal is to progressively advance in senior-level management positions within the Sierra Leonean or international media and to work as an effective leader in the revitalization of the economy and society of Sierra Leone. I am interest in Women Politician and the journalist who cover them.
