I feel like I’ve literally just entered/ began my journey - but so far, so good, alhamdulillah. The hardest part has been trying to get past my fear of sharing things I write (still working on that lol). Journalism is of course ~ very white ~ so at first it was a little difficult finding my feet in what can feel like a very inaccessible industry, but after I began connecting with black journalists, finding mentors etc - things got easier. I’d deffo recommend connecting with WABJ (we are black journos) and going to their events, which I think are mostly online right now, but they do really amazing work and provide you with such a beautiful support network. I have a lot of faith that God will always guide me to what is best for me - I hope that in the next 10 years, I am doing work that is filled with meaning and purpose and if that is within the journalism space for me, I’ll be there inshaAllah :)
