A brief catch up

14/10/2011

Hello peeps,

My latest article was commisioned by Al Jazeera. It is about the boom in mobile phone usage in Africa and the innovative solutions the technology is spurring in the continent (makes a change from the doom and gloom that we usually we get from Africa).

Also, on the Guardian, you can read an article I wrote about Dr Hawa Abdi, Somalia’s answer to Mother Theresa (back to the doom and gloom). This lady is doing amazing things in the war torn country. U.S Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called Dr Abdi “perfect example of the kind of woman who inspires me” and Glamour Magazine named her as the Woman of the Year for their award in 2010.
