About me
Hello! I’m Wedaeli, a freelance writer. Culture, social politics and African affairs are my bag. I’ve written for publications like The Guardian, The Independent, and VICE. I've also produced copy for businesses such as Hawkins Bazaar. Additionally, I've hosted talks and workshops on a range of topics, from music journalism to freelance copywriting. In my spare time, I swim, read, and teach myself Swahili. Hujambo?
