I have been a dedicated journalist for six years and have a proven track record in covering politics, general news stories (including crime, education and health), business profiles, and travel writing.
Specialties -- Reporting from the field, breaking news, website content development, technical writing & editing, science writing & editing, and feature writing & editing.
In 2014, I became a finalist for the Best Young Journalist category at the Aerospace Media Awards hosted in the UK.
I began my reporting career as an intern for MiD Day, a local daily, writing features on music, theater, art and dance among other interesting topics. Two months later, I became a full-time reporter on the news team where I covered health, education and technology.
I also covered other beats such as crime, which helped me see the city in a new light as the night reporter. This allowed me to successfully forge trustworthy and dependable relationships within the necessary circles such as the armed forces, the police department, and doctors etc., giving me access to a list of contacts when needed.
During my stint at MiD Day, I filed an average of four reports everyday many of which landed the front page.
Soon after, I joined Defense World where my experience was nothing but fulfilling. I ventured into this new sector virtually unknown and have since become a recognized expert and analyst in the field.
During my three year tenure here, I successfully reported several noteworthy stories and in July 2014, I became a finalist in the Best Young Journalist category at the Aerospace Media Awards.
My responsibilities at Defense World included covering global arms sales, weapons technology and defense companies. I was also in-charge of the day-to-day function of the website which included handling the reporting and editing team, and prioritizing news and features of interest, that are likely to generate maximum website hits.
