Personal Summary


I am a Cameroonian journalist with eleven years of working experience. I currently work as a reporter and news anchor person for the Cameroon Radio Television, (both radio and television). But I am also a stringer for a number of news organizations, including IPS, Ooskanews, Free Speech Radio News, Christian Science Monitor, CAJNews Africa; and Dpa.

I am a highly motivated and curious journalist who enjoys breaking the big news stories, as well as analyzing highly complicated political, economic, scientific and social events for the understanding of the common man.

I am approachable, well presented and able to establish good working relationships with a range of different people, and I always try to foster team spirit amongst colleagues.

My professional efforts paid off in 2012 when I won the WASH Media Awards in the radio category, as well as the 2013   Investigative Journalism Awards (radio category) organized by the British Council, the US Embassy and the Cameroon Association of Commonwealth Journalists.

 I am also the 2014 Runner up winner of the maiden CAADP Media Awards,organized by the African Union Commission,as well as the 2016 Runners up in the Africa Climate Change and Environmental Reporting (ACCER )Awards.
I hold a BA in Mass Communication from the University of Yaounde.
