Where I live: Sri Lanka
What I do: I was drawn to environmental journalism because of my passion for wildlife and writing. Most of my environmental articles covered elements of science, so later I stretched my wings to write about other aspects of science.
Why science journalism: There is always something new to learn and the challenge to present it in a simpler and more interesting manner to a wider audience.
Suggestions for newcomers:
- Don’t wait until you get the ‘right’ opportunity – just start writing – blogs, and social media are great platforms to start with.
- Participate in related events and expand your network – always associated with the science fraternity.
- Build a portfolio/archive of your published work from start (perhaps through a blog or MuchRack profile).
