Some incredible news right here! Nepal based Al Jazeera News correspondent Subina Shrestha is amongst the 2016 INTERNATIONAL EMMY AWARDS NEWS & CURRENT AFFAIRS NOMINEES! Subina has landed the nomination for her coverage of the Nepal earthquake 2015. 

Besides the earthquake coverage, Shrestha has shown incredible wit in the past through her reports on the Madhesh unrest, the health system in Nepal and features on the struggles of every day Nepalis. I first came across her work through her documentary Birth in Nepal and I was instantly captured by her style of reporting. Subina is also a Nieman Fellows 2016/2017 at the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University.

She’s up with seven other nominees from six different countries who have reported on the Migration Crisis, the ISIS and more. Winners will be announced on the 21st of September during the ceremony in New York.

Amazing news and well deserved for one of Nepal’s most noted journalist and correspondent.
