Mariama Wurie is a multi-disciplinary development professional and creative who places the African continent— its women, economies, and cultural innovations— at the heart of all that she does.
Mariama currently works as an Education Consultant (further specializing in Gender-Responsive Education Sector Planning (GRESP) and EdTech) for the World Bank in Sierra Leone— by day.
By night, on weekends, and sometimes on Thursdays— Mariama is also a Freelance Journalist, Presenter, and Multimedia Producer who has worked for news networks that include BBC, CNN and Deutsche Welle to name a few.
Mariama’s focus is on speaking truth, dignity and inspiration where stories are often underrepresented or misrepresented.
Mariama drinks a lot of coffee (black Americano, no milk and no sugar) and believes a lot of her work from the power of a good medium roast blend.
