Biography

Correspondent of the French Voice of America (VOA) service in Niger, I came to journalism, above all by passion. The choice between going to university and going to a school of journalism was indeed done soon after obtaining the baccalauréat. Out of school, I did two years of civic service on national radio. I then found myself in the once famous private radio station ANFANI as a journalist-reporter and presenter first, then editor-in-chief for six years. I am currently working at the LABARI radio and television press group. In addition to my status as VOA correspondent, I also collaborate with other media in Africa and Europe. With my last Masters Degree in Communication for Development, I serve from time to time as a consultant in media and communication for local and international NGOs.
