Helen Yosef Hailu

Helen Yosef Hailu is an Ethiopean communications specialist with expertise in journalism, media relations, research and teaching. She is a relationship builder, a team player, and a consistent performer with a record of effective and efficient delivery, and raising an organization’s profile. Helen began her career as an English teacher, and then worked as a community development and social worker. Her professional path then turned to journalism as she pursued her childhood dream of becoming a journalist. A logical extension of that was her move to the communications field and teaching. Helen is a strong believer that face-to-face communication and books still matter, that feminism is for everybody (as Bell Hooks would say) and that there is nothing called an African problem. When not working, she enjoys trawling museums, attending book and music festivals, and practicing yoga. Helen has an academic background in political science and international relations and holds an MA in Media, Peace and Conflict studies.
