Biography

I have been writing professionally for six years since graduating in History from King's College London.

This month I have an article called, 'Global Support Mission' coming out in Relevant Magazine.

I have also had some of my experiences as a volunteer in Uganda published by Chicago Review Press in the book, 'Volunteer Vacations' in February 2009.

I was successful in winning a place as the only British journalist to be invited by the US Embassy to the Pre-elections tour of the US in July 2004.

I had the opportunity to write and have an upclose and personal interview with a former child soldier in North Uganda as well as report on the lives of those living under rebel threats.
