Evelyne has over 10 years of media experience, including with Kenyan newspaper The Nation, and for the last three years with the BBC, during which she has honed an impressive multiformat skillset and a passion for breaking news. She has extensive experience developing, often collaboratively with local stringers, and reporting stories across the East African region including recently on the ongoing civil war in northern Ethiopia and the hotly contested Kenyan elections. She has reported stories of her own on a diverse range of beats, including on the health and environmental issues confronting many countries on the continent.
Wishing her great success in her career at AP!
