Hi, I'm Kira!

I'm a multimedia journalist specialising in travel and lifestyle, with previous work in Intrepid Travel's The Good Times, Bustle, HELLO! Magazine, GAY TIMES, Black Ballad and more, creating content reaching an audience of over 125 million every month. I'm currently Editorial Intern at Financial Times HTSI Magazine.

I often focus on food, global cultures, health and wellness stories, but also enjoy writing profiles and stories with an investigative edge. Additionally, I'm an experienced breaking news writer and have keen interest in radio and podcasts.

I graduated with a first class honours degree in Journalism from City, University of London in 2023 and received two Edward Mace Awards: 1st place for the highest awarded final project and 3rd place highest achieving Journalism student, alongside the 1st place Nick Lewis Trust Award for being the highest achieving BA Journalism student in my second year.

I was City’s African Caribbean Journalism Network leader and held editor roles for the university's magazine, Carrot and NOVA, which platforms diverse health and beauty conditions. I was also selected for the spring 2023 HarperCollins Author Academy and Intrepid Travel's first Diversifying Travel Media press trip.
