NN’s Tecee Boley is a Konrad-Adnauer-Stiftung scholar

New Narratives is immensely proud that our fellow and Senior Reporter for Front Page Africa Tecee Boley has won the 2014 Konrad-Adnauer-Stiftung scholarship to the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. Tecee was one of three journalists chosen from across Africa for the prestigious program.

Tecee was one of the first reporters to join New Narratives in July 2010 and she has notched up a string of extraordinary achievements in that time including a Pulitzer fellowship, a Development Reporter of the Year award and training opportunities in the US, Sweden, Norway, South Africa and the UK. Her brave reporting on subjects from water and sanitation problems to child prostitution and maternal mortality have brought profound change in Liberia. Her work has appeared on national public television and radio in the US and in global publications such as Global Post and Reuters.

We are very proud of your accomplishments Tecee and look forward to seeing what you do with the skills and knowledge you will gain during your year at Wits. Good luck!
