I am a former BBC International Correspondent and co founder and of Miran media. I spent 15 years working and reported for BBC domestic news on Health and Education and current affairs and as a World Affairs Correspondent for Foreign news reporting from over 60 countries on some of the most significant stories of our times, including the death of Nelson Mandela, the Asian Tsunami, the Assassination of Benazir Bhutto, the Sri Lankan Civil War, the Kashmir conflict, following the trail of the 7/7 London bombers, the geopolitical complexities of the Indian and Afghan elections, as well as the global and national trends of the Indian and African business story. My 15 years experience across TV, Radio and on line has given me a unique insight into what impacts domestic and world wide audiences. I have successfully been able to use my passion and experience around diversity and inclusion to promote real change. I started my career as a community worker and have always fought for the underdog, breaking the glass ceiling for minorities and promoting and campaigning for fair and accurate portrayal of communities and their stories across the BBC. In my spare time I advised the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates on communication on a pro bono basis and have been public speaker and conference host and a former Ambassador for the Prince’s Trust. I am passionate about ensuring true diversity and representation is reflected in global storytelling. I have spent five years successfully building Miranmedia. We have a proven track record in forensically investigating stories with international appeal that surprise audiences and feature unheard voices. Our mission is to tell powerful and relatable human stories behind complex, challenging issues.
