Modupe Macaulay: I am a fourth year French and Spanish student at King’s College, London. During my university degree I have partaken in university exchanges in Chile, Spain and Switzerland. I have previously interned at BBC World Service and BBC Africa, as well as undertaking a mentorship scheme at CNN London. My time working as a journalist on the Economic and Social Council at the GIMUN 2015 Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, gave me the opportunity to broaden my journalistic horizons as I learnt the impact of reporting not solely on political matters, but also economic matters; including, the ethical cost of economic boom in Middle-Eastern society. I am currently a freelance writer for various online publications alongside studying. My work thus far has heavily involved African news, not purely political stories, but also human stories. I have reported on a wide range of topics from African literature to the plight of school girls in northern Nigeria. I hope to gain more experience in the world of media, to train and work as a broadcast journalist. In my spare time I enjoy reading, pilates and anything involving food!
