What do I strive to be as a journalist?
Your eyes and ears. Telling it like it is. Exploring all the angles. Speaking to those who act and those affected. Holding those in power to account.

7 things I love about news :
1. NEVER knowing whether today will just pass or make history
2. Holding those in power to account
3. Asking the right questions at the right time
4. Finding the angle that matters beyond the next headline
5. Creating space for the voices that otherwise go unheard
6. Being at the pulse of global change
7. Getting the right information and deep cutting analysis - fast
