NN is very proud of fellow and FrontPage Africa Newsroom Chief Wade William who capped a brilliant year last night by winning the German Media Development Prize for Africa at a ceremony in Berlin – on her birthday! The win follows Wade’s success in winning a prestigious Dag Hammarskjold fellowship to the UN last year and Liberia’s Journalist of the Year last month.
Wade is a fierce opponent of the discrimination and harassment women journalists face on a daily basis. As one of Liberia’s most celebrated journalists she is proving by her own actions that women are every bit as capable as men. Bravo Wade! We’re proud to have helped you find your own voice and become a voice for so many Liberians who have none.
