She made the announcement through a blog post, published by SubSelfie, titled “Why I Left My Job as TV News Reporter in a Popular Network.”

She added that she is heading to another meaningful journey as a humanitarian worker. She will be working as a communication officer for the international and independent medical humanitarian organization Medecins Sans Frontieres or Doctors Without Borders.
She continued, “I am grateful I’ve found a place where my background in Broadcast Journalism and Psychology is appreciated.
“Finally, I can clearly see a path to fulfilling another dream as a Psychologist.”
