Fabine Kwiah is a reporter and newscaster at Radio Veritas where she presents the weekly Voices of Women program. She has been a New Narratives fellow since July 2011. In 2012 Fabine’s report on the impact of Liberia’s high rate of teenage pregnancy won her the national women’s reporting award.

An avid listener to the radio as a child, Fabine was quickly hooked on broadcast news. She learned to love reading and writing from her Catholic school teachers. She decided to pursue journalism after the war. “What I saw during the war encouraged me to want to become a journalist so that I could keep people abreast of what is happening around us.” Fabine holds a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in sociology from the University of Liberia and plans to obtain her Master’s degree in conflict resolution.
