About me

International Broadcast Journalist
Conference Speaker. 
Founder, Project Smile Africa

For the last 7 years I’ve told hundreds of community stories in Africa. I bring the right nuances and perspectives to African stories in international newsrooms. International reporting requires me to do more with less, taking up news presenting, reporting, writing, editing, blogging, videography, live hits, and producing. I’ve filed stories for print, broadcast and social media.

Adesewa has reported on major international events like the Historic US-Africa Leaders’ Summit at the White House in Washington DC and The George W. Bush African First Ladies conference in Dareesalam Tanzania.

In 2015, Adesewa Josh was assigned to the United Nations headquarters in New York to report on Nigeria’s rotational presidency at the Security Council where she deeply analyzed the resolutions of the council and how it affects the nation and continent.
