Heba Aly is a Khartoum-based freelance journalist and a recipient of a grant from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting for journalists who go to under-reported areas. As a freelancer in Sudan, she has contributed news and features to various outlets, including Bloomberg News, the Globe and Mail newspaper (Canada), the Christian Science Monitor newspaper (US), Public Radio International and the United Nations humanitarian news service, IRIN. Previously, she worked for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), in both radio and television, as well as many of Canada's largest daily newspapers: the Toronto Star, the Globe and Mail, the Montreal Gazette and the Ottawa Citizen. She also worked for IRIN in Senegal and Chad (West and Central Africa respectively). She graduated with highest honours from Ottawa's Carleton University and, as first in her class, was awarded the university medal in journalism. She speaks fluent English and French, and conversational Arabic and Spanish. This is a sampling of her work - radio, print and wire - while in Sudan. Please be patient while she tries to update it!
Note: Heba has since been expelled from Sudan by national security and is now based in Cairo, Egypt.
