At the time of producing this documentary I was a trainee broadcast journalist. I’d spent the last 12 months learning the ropes, doing my MA in Multimedia Broadcast Journalism at University College Falmouth. I was born in rural Norfolk before uprooting and moving to Brighton where I studied English Literature at the beautiful University of Sussex. Now I live in Bristol, working with BBC Radio 4.

I’ve had a long interest in international development, ignited by letters that my aunt sent me from Uganda when I was very young. In 2010 I spent two months in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia teaching spoken English at Hillside Primary School. When I was there I was lucky enough to be taken on a trip with Send A Cow who work in Africa, providing families with training and support so they can make their own way out of poverty. You can read about that trip here.

I was fortunate enough to receive funding for my documentary from One World Media.
