I am a journalist and cinematographer based in London but I was born and raised in Madrid (Spain) I am half Spanish and half Nigerian with a little bit from Cameroon and Congo. I studied Journalism, Cinema, Sociology, and I am currently specialising myself with a MA in Media and Development at Westminster University.
In my path (media) I discovered I can do multiple things with technologies to tell stories in so many different ways, illustration, writing or poetry allow me to express myself with freedom.
As a black woman, I experienced different types of discrimination (based on race and gender) which made me realise that my aim in life is to fight for human rights. There are different ways to join the battle but I have chosen my writing skills and illustration as a way to spread a knowledge and a fair representation because media and the network is where the revolution is going to start.
