Judith Reker

Frankfurt am Main, Germany

Judith Reker's very first feature, in 2002, was based on a 4-week trip along the river Niger where she visited Niger's first female architect in her house by the river and an octogenarian female protester in Nigeria's Niger Delta. Judith has since reported from around 20 African countries. From 2005 to 2014, she was based in Kenya, the DRC and South Africa, consecutively.

Judith is a feature writer and analyst with a recent focus on new technologies, especially in the Global South. She also covers social issues, the arts and culture. Before deciding to freelance, Judith was editor of politics and social issues at the award-winning German magazine "mare" in Hamburg.

Judith was born in Munich, studied Arabic, Hebrew and history in London (one year in Egypt) and is currently pursuing another degree in computer science. In 2009, she co-founded a publishing house and co-authored its first title which became an international success.

At present, Judith is based in Frankfurt, Germany.
