Shoutout to you for listening to last week’s episode with the incredible Jamelia Donaldson.
Today’s guest is Coco Khan, Coco is a journalist, and an incredibly talented writer. She’s the Commissioning editor for The Guardian B2B as well as being a columnist for The Guardian Weekend. Coco has also contributed to two hugely successful books The Good Immigrant edited by Nikesh Shukla and Not about the Burqa edited by Mariam Khan.
In today’s episode we talk about how Coco came to be a successful journalist, we touch on representation and why it’s sometimes tokenistic. Coco shares how she was able to develop her writing style and develop a confident voice. We touch on how external validation can be normal and healthy as a motivator. Let’s dive in!
I had so much fun recording with Coco on this episode. She’s an absolute blast, if you’re now as enamoured with her as I am you definitely need to check out her work in The Good Immigrant and It’s not about the Burqa Also absolutely go and and follow her @cocobyname on Twitter.
