Olivia is a journalist, documentary filmmaker and social entrepreneur.
Olivia is a journalist and documentary filmmaker.
She’s written for The Guardian, The Economist, TIME Magazine, Reuters, the BBC and others. The situation with unpaid internships was so bad when she started out that she calculated a one-way ticket to Chile would be a more cost-effective option to get started in the industry. After graduating from Cambridge, she spent time teaching English and reporting from South America, before going on to graduate from Columbia Journalism School. She was lucky enough to secure paid internships in the US with the likes of VICE News, AJ+, the BBC Washington bureau and The Wall Street Journal.
Ironically it was one of only two unpaid internships she did at the BBC World Service that led to her first job… She has also spent a year passing her knowledge on to young journalists as a Senior lecturer in Multimedia journalism at Oxford Brookes University.
She now focuses entirely on PressPad - and Ziggy, her beloved cat.

Camille is a freelance multimedia journalist, editor and producer with a bit of a different career path.
She started out by working with the European Youth Press on projects funded by the Council of Europe and co-founding an equal opportunity programme at her university in France. After her graduation from Sciences Po Strasbourg, Camille mainly worked for London-based creative agencies in training design, communications, advertising and branding ending up as an account director. But she returned to her first love of journalism when she joined the national independent publication The National Student and became its editor.
Since then, she has worked with The World Today, Routed Magazine, ABC News, Journalism.co.uk. She is a fellow of human rights charity the 3 million Stories for Change’s programme.
Camille’s focus is on current affairs, diversity issues and arts, but her true passion is reading in bed.
