When Jina Moore was in Middle School she became intensely curious about the Holocaust, reading everything she could on the subject. That curiosity improbably led a girl from a small town in West Virginia to become pen pals with the woman who hid Anne Frank.

These days, Jina is based in Nairobi, Kenya and is the international women’s rights correspondent for Buzzfeed, where she’s covered key stories, including the ebola outbreak. On a personal note, she is someone whose reporting I’ve come to rely on to have a deeper and more textured understanding of important global issues.

Jina tells some fascinating stories about her reporting, and discusses her own journey to become a widely respected globe trotting reporter.
