I have a passion for telling unheard stories that remain silent and on the margins of society. My journalism demonstrates that the pen is mightier than the sword – it brings social change and shows people that their situations can only change if they are informed and if they know that they can work together.
In 2005, I completed my Bachelor of Science honors degree in journalism and media studies, but I didn’t practice for three years. During this period, I worked for nonprofit organizations that were advancing rights of marginalized and vulnerable groups. This made me to realize that the day-to-day shocking and horrific stories of the violation of their human rights never found space in the mainstream media. I joined GPI in 2009 to tell these unheard stories of the forgotten groups and the underreported issues in my country.
Working as a journalist for GPI makes use of my skills to write, observe and analyse issues happening around me. It helps me fulfill my personal goal of advancing communication rights for marginalized groups.
