Rachel Rawlins · September, 2006

I started blogging in 2003 and it is as a blogger that I joined Global Voices Online as managing editor in 2006. I was seduced by the individual social side of blogging, I'm now wedded to its potential to empower individuals around the world to tell their own stories and shape the future of what we call “news”. I worked for more than 15 years as a radio journalist for the BBC World Service, mostly specialising in news about Africa. I've also worked for various human rights and media freedom organisations. I have a really bad gadget addiction and I love to knit, if I ever get the time.
