“The press and media have a huge responsibility, as they have the power to influence our perceptions and the way we understand the world around us. I think this is something that should not be taken lightly, and hope that I can use this platform to spread a more positive and empowering depiction of Africa.”






“As a reporter, quitting is no option. When the writing gets tough, we might have to move out of our comfort zone to get the  crack a good story.”










“A photograph says a thousand words.”









“I want to bring out my inner self and gain more experience in reporting. Being a youth reporter will be a great way to improve my writing and communication skills while contributing to a community project. I expect to  meet new people and broaden my

I am really interested in learning about the individual stories of people in the community and I think this will give me a great platform in order to do this. It will also allow me to keep my friends and family at home involved in the work we are doing in  

Uganda. “
