About Koroi

Currently I am a Freelance Journalist Working out of the Solomon Islands. Before Freelancing I worked for six years with a local Television Station News Room it was called One Television Solomon Islands. Because it was a small station we had to do everything and anything that was required to keep the station and its programs going so I call it my Journalism Degree at the University of HArd Knocks. In the future I hope to work for and International News Organization that covers news in the Pacific. I see myself as a Pacific Island Journalist.
