I’m a reporter.
I like to tell stories, and being able to meet different people is one of the best things about the job. I’ve met migrant workers, ministers, and CEOs, so that’s pretty exciting.
What’s the most memorable experience that you had?
I got my phone stolen by the First Lady of Zimbabwe. I was trying to ask her a question when she snatched it from my hand and never gave it back. (laughs)
If you had all the time in the world to do anything, what would it be and why?
I need and wish I had all the time in the world to just chill. To be honest, I’m so tired and I just want to rest.(laughs) My ideal chill destination would be Papua New Guinea because it’s a beautiful place and the people there seem really interesting. It has a dynamic political landscape too because West Papua, which is part of Indonesia rather than Papua New Guinea, is trying to be independent.
My favourite film:
Brazil, by Terry Gilliam. It’s a movie based off George Orwell’s book, 1984, and an exaggeration of the world we live in right now.
How would you describe your fashion style?
Practical, because I have to run around different places in a day—sometimes I have to go to a press conference to meet a minister, followed by a visit to see the migrant workers, so I have to wear something appropriate that’ll carry me through the different places without sticking out like a sore thumb. Some journalists run around in heels but I can’t do that.
One thing you’d never be caught dead wearing?
Never say never, there’s nothing I wouldn’t wear right now.
