This is especially meaningful to me as it is the first award I have won for my work and it is still at an early stage of my career. It was great to be presented the award from Angela Rippon, a veteran broadcaster who I remember waking up to watching the news on Channel 4?s Big Breakfast every morning donkey?s years ago. Congratulations to the others nominated from Club Asia also, I?m accepting the award for the team?.
