Thank you so much again for all the help. I feel very grateful to IWMF. I have learned so much from this experience and it really accelerates my growth as a journalist and a person. I feel extremely privileged to have had this opportunity. I am telling my friends about it and I'll definitely spread the word!
Venus Wu Tanzania reporting trip May 2016
The trip contributed immensely to my professional development. It gave me the privilege to report from an underreported area and therefore dominate the bulletins in my media house. Helped me touch on issues that are not widely spoken of in my country and has opened more opportunities on the continent for me.
