A day in the life of Sierra Leone’s most celebrated female journalist

Asmaa James is an award-winning broadcast journalist. She is the lead anchor of ‘Gud Monin Salone’, Sierra Leone’s most important breaking news, current events, and human rights program on Radio Democracy 98.1. In addition to this Ms James was crucial to the survival of 98.1 after the radio station was evicted from its initial home 10 years ago. She single-handedly campaigned and fundraised for the resources to build a new station.

Asmaa James’ journey to a journalism career was accidental. She had hoped to become an air hostess or a police officer. Until one day when she heard a job advert for a radio presenter. She applied and was accepted and trained. That led to a volunteer opportunity at Radio Democracy in 2001 where she has worked and won many accolades in the past 18 years.

Check out this day in the life feature video of GoWoman Asmaa James in her own words.
