She shared that her first assignment in the role was the coverage of black students trapped in Ukraine.
"I started last week and am particularly proud of the first episode I helped to shape and create, which focused on Black students trapped in Ukraine. Through our research, we also discovered why so many foreign students were prevented from getting out of Ukraine in the lead up to the Russian invasion."

Congratulations!!! Kamilah McInnis BBC is finally moving with the times in terms of black female radio presenters being given the opportunities to make programming decisions and to be more at the forefront. I remember starting at BBC Radio 3, in 2002, as the first black radio presenter there ever, wondering on another floor at BH preparing for my show only to be asked, if I was looking for the broom closet. Mostly cleaners and security guards were the people of colour working at night. Many of these stories don’t make it to posts. Looking forward to hearing and seeing more of you

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a driven young lady by the name of Janet Akambuba was granted an interview on SVTV Africa by DJ Nyaami where she shared the story behind her recent profession.
In the interview, Janet intimated that she moved from Upper East to the southern part of Ghana to work and save money and now as an Okada rider, she is able to earn as much as Ghc200 per day.
The young lady recounted that her dream is to become a Policewoman someday but all efforts to get recruited into the service have proved futile.
She added that the last thing she plans to do is to give up and she is willing to do all it takes to be selected.
