Today, Stephanie Busari is celebrating her birthday and for her achievements, also deserves to be celebrated globally as a remarkable role model for women around the world.

Recently selected as the only Nigerian in Yale’s World Fellow Program class of 2020, Stephanie Busari is a multi-award-winning journalist and editor at CNN Worldwide.

Stephanie Busari began her work as a freelance journalist for BBC News. In 2008, she made the switch to CNN. Stephanie relocated to Lagos from London in 2016, pioneered CNN’s first multi-platform and digital bureau and remains the head of the CNN Nigeria bureau.

Stephanie Busari has received multiple awards, especially for her contribution to the reportage of the missing Chibok schoolgirls in Nigeria. Stephanie was a significant part of the team of journalists that received the exclusive “proof of life” video, which led to negotiations with Boko Haram and the release of more than 100 of the kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls. She has been a recipient of the Peabody Award in 2015, Outstanding Woman in the Media Awards and the Hollywood Gracie Awards in 2017 for her tenacity in the media profession.
