Lucy Brinkley

Freelance Journalist

I have recently graduated from the University of Leeds with a BA in Politics and Sociology, and I am interested in a career that works towards social and gender equality. My final year dissertation was concerned with gender-based sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and this increased my passion for promoting vital healthcare services for all; especially those who had experienced severe trauma. I would like to develop my research and writing skills within the charity and NGO sectors, and I am excited to work with the AHO to provide reliable information about recent developments in Africa.
