The journey ahead is however what she looks forward to. With a book on Chibok Girls due to be released in May 2019, Isha hopes to focus on “a lot more coverage about Africa, a lot more work on the continent, and a lot more focus on young girls.”

For Isha, the Western media’s coverage of Africa hasn’t been the best. “I want to put a focus on Africa in the way I wish all international media would cover Africa. Now it’s either under-reported or not reported with the right nuance and context. I’m going to turn my attention to being one in this new army of people who are moving into this space, who are representing Africa in a new way,” she said. The attention of the media has been so much focused on Trump for Isha, “it’s not what I want to spend all my time doing.”

Isha, who is actively involved in the Sierra Leonean society, started a non-profit organization W.E CAN LEAD, for nurturing girls. The vision of the organization is to have every girl receive quality education.

600 girls are currently under Isha’s leadership programme. There is no doubt that Isha looks forward to exciting projects and more autonomy outside CNN.
