Covering East Africa

Hey there,

I’m back in Europe after working and traveling for almost a year in East Africa. Feeling so blessed for all the experiences past, as well as for what’s yet to come.

I’m currently finalizing a Master’s thesis for my degree on peace and conflict research and working for a Finnish feminist magazine Tulva. These projects have kept me relatively busy since my return. Some of the journalistic work I’ve done recently includes a story about Italian journalists, who are threatened by the mafia, for Finnish Broadcasting Company YLEItaly’s Lega party for political magazine Ulkopolitiikka as well as technological innovation and road traffic in Uganda for the Finland’s leading daily, Helsingin Sanomat. Recently, I also wrote about what happened in Italy during the World Cup for X-lehti and about how is sustainable, community-based tourism done in Kenya for Huili magazine.

You can read the first ones on the links, whereas the final one is attached below. 

A couple more travel stories of mine are about to be published – in Hong Kong, in the Netherlands and in Finland. 

That’s all for now, have a sunny and joyful fall!
