Catherine was born in London, England and grew up in Nigeria and Switzerland. She graduated from Durham university with a BA in Middle Eastern History and Arabic and went on to the University of London to do a Master’s in African History and Politics. After traveling the world she decided she wanted to be a journalist and went back to study Broadcast Journalism winning a BBC scholarship.
