With over five years’ experience in journalism, copywriting and advertorials, among other texts, my op-eds have been featured in The Guardian, Al Jazeera English, Broadly, Courrier International and Roads & Kingdoms.

I have produced copy for a leading telecom company, a luxury day spa and an independent film production company, written advertorials for Guardian LabsScan Magazine and Discover Benelux, as well as blogged for the F-word and The Finnish Institute in London.

Fuelled by bucketloads of coffee and a deep passion for my work, I write everything from snappy website copy to long, narrative stories, as well as edit and proofread content.
I am fluent in English, French and Finnish.

 In December 2016, I spoke at TedXWarwick on identity, belonging and multiculturalism.

 Whether you are looking for an opinion piece, blog post or help with copy-editing, get in touch with me!

like me make it up as we go along

When your mother is from Finland, your father from Senegal,and you live in neither, your identity becomes a matter of choice.

TedXWarwick: The many masks I wear

Identifying as a Third Culture Kid, Ndéla offers us an unorthodox interpretation of culture — she explores what it means to be a citizen of the world and the sensation of belonging everywhere and nowhere at the same time.
