I am a media personality who has been working in the industry for over 15 years. My career spans across various roles and organizations

I started as a broadcaster with Abakwa FM/TV in Bamenda where I worked for over Nine years before becoming the Bureau Chief for the lone English Language daily in Cameroon at the time; The Guardian Post Newspaper for the North West and West Regions for close to 5 years.

During this period I reported amongst other issues; sports, politics, culture, entertainment, environment, meeting and interviewing key stakeholders in these sectors for other media outlets as a stringer.

I have worked as a Communications Assistant at the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) headquarters in Yaoundé and served as the Media Officer for team Cameroon during the 2020 African Nations Championship (CHAN)

I am the Administrator of Hilltopvoices Communications Group Ltd, a rising marketing and communication company with a fast growing online and offline reputation and following. I have hosted over 100 cooperate and private events as an MC in the last three years.

What I think sets me apart is my commitment to using my skills and platform for good. I currently work as a Communications Assistant at Hope for the Needy Association (HOFNA) Cameroon, where I am able to make a positive impact on the lives of others through my work particularly by strengthening the leadership, power and voices of susceptible women and girls from disadvantaged communities.
