Obama in Africa

Another momentous media moment I forgot to post!

I recently oversaw africa.com’s coverage and social marketing of Barack Obama’s historic round trip of three African countries last year collated under the banner Obama in Africa. Africa.com CEO Teresa Clarke was in the press corp, a massive honor for a small online publisher!

I was so happy that even with all the crazy coordinating of writers, planning stories, working on video and liaising with the Whitehouse I was able to cover some events and do some writing. My pieces are below.
