In the public eye

Updated: Jul 20


We can be featured in mainstream media in two ways; either by being the writer like a columnist, or we can be written about when someone interviews us. This enable us to get in contact with much more people, discuss topics and facilitate change. At best, we become recognized on the bus with gratitude, at worst we become threatened and stalked.


Here is a list of what I can remember of where and when I was featured either with my own written opinion or showed on photo and written about, in newspapers, magazines, radio and TV (regular blogs excluded), besides copywriting projects for companies:
