I'm a writer and editor covering luxury, travel, lifestyle, food and technology across Africa. I also document mental health, relationships and careers from the perspective of a Gen Z Millennial (outliers born between 1996 - 1999). I have over 3 years+ experience writing for the web and print, with a background in PR and Communications.
🕵🏾♀️I'm open to remote roles anywhere in the world, working as a writer, publisher and editor. I'm interested in single engagements, fixed contracts and part-time roles for publications, individuals and brands in the fields I cover.
My diverse background has provided me with a range of skills that sets me apart, and makes me one of the most promising talents in my field. I have a unique mix of abilities and experiences that help me tell stories from rare perspectives.
🏡: I've lived in Nigeria, South Africa, Senegal & the Benin Republic.
✈️: I've visited Botswana, Ghana, Gambia, Rwanda and more.
👩🏾💻: I've worked in Entertainment, Digital Marketing, Sales, Events, PR, Advertising and Tech Consulting.
🦸🏾♀️: I currently work with The Luxe Digest as the Editor.
👩🏾🎓: I have a BA in Public Relations. I Majored in PR, Communications & Marketing and Minored in Journalism & Media Studies. I also graduated best Public Relations Student.
🛠️: My skills include Technical Writing, UI Design & Project Management.
While my first love has always been writing, in the last few years I've had the opportunity to discover UI Design & Front End Development and dive into the world of technology. My love for learning and technology has also led me to expand my horizons beyond Media and Communications into Operations and Project Management. The world of media is fast-paced, and it takes a great deal of planning and discernment to make things work. While I will always be a writer, my next career objective is to learn as much as I can and transition into Management and Operations full time.
🧘🏾♀️: My next academic goal is completing an MSc in Interactive Digital Media / Digital Innovation.
