If my story speaks to the smart 12 year old, I am home and dry. I previously worked as Account Manager at Avid Public Relations and Business Editor at CCTV Africa (CGTN) At Avid PR, my work involved creating strategies, Conceptualizing and communicating how the various aspects of business and finance affect peoples lives on a daily basis: something that has been a passion of mine for a long time. I found my interpretive skills useful because it meant that I could translate the numbers and figures that a company churns out and turn that into a story that would be useful for news outlets and be interesting and engaging for a reader or viewer. Before deciding to branch out to seek new challenges, I held the position of Business Editor at CCTV Africa in charge of a Business Desk with correspondents in 28 African countries.
