Meet the new Journey journalist

I HAVE always marvelled at how powerful the media is whenever the phrase, “the pen is mightier than the sword” comes to mind. Although the pen has been somewhat replaced by the keyboard, the concept remains.

Writing is a vocation I am passionate about.

As a journalist working in Papua New Guinea for 10 years, I believe the media can empower consumers with appropriate knowledge that can make a positive difference in their lives and in society.

Writing with the objective to inform, educate and entertain not only enlightens readers and audiences, but also gives them the opportunity to make well-informed choices, if not create a forum for debate.

I have been writing about women’s issues for the past eight years as editor of a woman’s magazine in PNG. I also see the need to highlight issues affecting young people in today’s modern world.

I never envisioned an honour like this humbling opportunity to work with the Church.

I am constantly in awe of how the Lord continues to enrich my life with the right amount of blessing, in his own way and at his own time.

It is with great anticipation and some trepidation that I start with Journey and hope I can contribute to the life of the Church.
