Shilu Manandhar

Senior Reporter

Shilu Manandhar is a senior reporter at Global Press Journal and joined in Nepal after completing the training in 2012. She has reported on migration issues in Qatar, global warming in the Himalayan region and mental health in Nepal, among others.

After studying economics, psychology and sociology, she entered journalism in 2009, reporting for Nepal’s national daily and leading magazines. She is Persephone Miel Fellow of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.

Shilu came to GPJ because she wanted to work for an independent news organization dedicated to reporting the facts without bias. “I believe journalism’s sole endeavor is to share the truth. After I wrote my first Global Press story in March 2012, I knew I had found my home,” she says.
