Some of My Work

BBC World Service: Michelle Obama: Black Like Me

What struck me when I first saw the Obamas was  Michelle -  she was a darker-skinned woman married to a lighter-skinned man. In the world of fame and fortune, the trend is usually that black men pair with women who are lighter skinned. The roots of these preferences painful and long standing. In this (the 1st ever) radio documentary for the BBC World Service, I went to the USA to explore colourism and to find out if Michelle Obama’s powerful presence changed anything.

BBC Radio 4: Grenfell Tower Fire: Local News, What Are We Missing? 

As a reporter who covered the Grenfell Fire in London in 2017, I went on to explore what now constitutes "local news", whose job it is to report it and asks why some stories just get missed completely. Is a thriving local media a luxury from a bygone era, a vital pillar of democracy, or both? I talk to the Grenfell blogger - I find that there’s a plethora of media that all cover west London. So why were the dangerous living conditions of tower block residents not regarded as newsworthy?

BBC World Service - The Why Factor: Yoga 

Yoga is an ancient practice that includes meditation, exercise and spirituality.Why do millions of us do it every day and how has it become so popular over time? There is controversy about different types of yoga and whether they ring true to the original purpose of the practice.  I speak to practitioners including the director of a 98-year-old yoga institute in India and an instructor who teaches yoga for you and your dog.

BBC London: Digital Reporter - Video 1.4million views

As a Digital News Reporter I filed stories for radio, by way of a live interview on the daily news programme. Using my iPhone I was also expected to shoot and edit a short video (whilst standing in the street) and post it on to BBC's Radio London's social media accounts, before my radio report. This particular video went viral. Within 2 days it had over 1.4 million views, 24k Shares and 3k Comments. (View with caution due to nature of the story).
