Photojournalist

“They say a picture is worth 1'000 words - by combining stunning photography with original reporting Oona tells a very compelling story.”

With a background in Communication Studies (B.A.) and Intercultural Encounters (M.A.), I’ve been equipped to write about complex world wide topics. My main interest is in societal, cultural and environmental themes, but I am also known for travel stories, biographies and creative writing.

Some of my publications can be found in the following sources. You may also read an example of my work: Life Mission? Save the World. The article received 1’900 readers already during the first 90 minutes.
