Michelle Henery is the new host of Focus on Europe. Born in the United States to a Jamaican mother and Guyanese father, Michelle knew from the outset that staying in one place for her entire life was not on the cards.
Shortly after graduating from Georgetown University, she left the US and spent the next decade working as a journalist in some of the leading news organizations in Europe. From starting her career as a trainee writer with Reuters in Paris, to working as a reporter and editor with The Times of London and then as an on-camera correspondent for Al Jazeera English, she has sought to understand and explain transatlantic issues. She has lived happily in Berlin for five years now, which for her may be a record!
