Samantha Johnson will be speaking on the Inspirational YOU Women at the top panel at the House of Commons on Wednesday 27th November 2013
Samantha started her career in the media as a print journalist for the Urban music and lifestyle magazine ‘Touch’. Her interest in sport gave her the opportunity to interview sportsmen such as Ashley Cole and Jermain Defoe and liaise with brands such as Nike, Adidas and Puma. She eventually got the chance to gain 2-weeks work experience at Europe’s biggest sports channel, Sky Sports News and since then the girl from Birmingham hasn’t looked back.
Samantha’s talents, hard work and experience has seen her work for Sky Sports, Chelsea TV, Coral TV, Girls Sport Talk, Trace Sports and more recently for Al Jazeera which broadcasts to the Middle East and North Africa.
