Khartoum – Amani Sherif is considered among the top Sudanese journalists who enjoys a good sense of humor, professionalism, and high expertise in a rare type of journalism that requires patience and attention to details.

Amani has challenged the tough conditions of her disability and achieved a fine position in the field of documentary journalism, which encouraged the Sudanese Foundation for Disabled People, chaired by Ali Othman Mohammad Taha to honor her with the Award of Press Creativity and Excellence for Disabled People in correspondence with the U.N. International Day of Persons with Disabilities on the third of December.

The Sudanese journalist got a B.S. in Economy from Al-Neelain University and had an excellent performance in the Arabic language and great writing skills. After her graduation, she worked in many newspapers including Alwan, Alhurra, Alahram, Hikayat, and currently works in the “Al Youm Al Tali”.

Amani had an accident in her childhood while she was in the first phases of her academic life, which lead to a non-curable disability. The journalist said that she had faced her disability with challenge, resistance, and strong will.

Her disability didn’t isolate her, infact, she has made great achievements in one of the toughest journalistic fields and proved that people suffering from special needs can as well have personal achievements.
