Hi, I'm Kira!

I'm a multimedia travel and lifestyle journalist with previous work in Financial Times HTSI, Adventure.com, Intrepid Travel, Bustle and more.

I'm interested in food, slow & sustainable travel (especially on trains!) wellness and community-focussed stories, particularly in the Caribbean and Latin America. I'm also an experienced breaking news writer and enjoy 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, Intrepid Travel's first Diversifying Travel Media press trip and the first Step Up scheme in partnership with leading travel media organisations.
