Reporting on field

From the time she can remember, she always had a distinct curiosity about people and their stories.

Finding herself eager to ask why, and seek the truth, Elizabeth knew journalism was her calling. More importantly, she believes investigative journalism is at the crux of a functioning democracy. As a journalist, she holds the responsibility with great regard. Elizabeth believes in the power of storytelling-transcendent through every generation.

She aspires to combine her passion for storytelling with her cultural curiosity. Elizabeth hopes to share stories not only from home, but also from those abroad as an international correspondent.

When Elizabeth isn’t reporting, you can most likely find her de-stressing at the gym and perfecting her art as part-time dessert connoisseur.
