Christina Goldbaum is a freelance video journalist and photographer based in Nairobi, Kenya. She has worked throughout East and Southern Africa covering issues from Al-Shabab's attack on Kenya's Garissa University and election unrest in Burundi to the East African music industry. Through her work she strives to document the consequences of extreme poverty, political unrest, and the violation of human rights as well as broaden the African narrative abroad through unexpected and untold stories.
Originally from Washington D.C., Christina graduated magna cum laude from Tufts University with a B.A. in Political Science. While in New England she undertook a six month investigative reporting project on incarceration and gang violence in Providence, Rhode Island, which received a Grand Prize from The Atavist Magazine's Digital Storymakers Competition for excellence in multimedia journalism.
Christina has reported for Agence France-Presse, Foreign Policy, VICE News, Quartz, the Christian Science Monitor, Africa Geographic, OZY.com, and Africa Times among others and done video production and investigative research for non-profit organizations across East Africa and Latin America. Christina believes every story has a medium through which it is best told, and that by working in multiple media she can tell each story in its most fitting narrative form.
She speaks Swahili and Spanish, and is available for assignments worldwide. Please visit the contact page to get in touch.
