Esta Suma is a broadcast journalist, presenter and social media commentator, comfortable in front of and behind the camera.
Her passion is presenting and producing stories and documentaries that take audiences out of their comfort zones and has over three years experience in broadcast newsrooms, live television and studio production.
As comfortable on the red carpet as she is covering festivals or local community news, Esta has a passion for creating engaging video content, from gritty political issues to entertainment news and motivational figures. In front of the camera, Esta has presented on the red carpet at the MOBOs and the ARIAS Radio Awards.
Excellent research skills helped her to gain a First Class Honours BSc in Broadcast Media Technologies from Leeds Beckett University and during her placements with BBC Look North and BBC Radio Leeds.
Confident camera operator working with Cannon 5D and Sony NX30, she is able to edit in Premier Pro and Final Cut Pro and is trained in radio production, including Adobe Audition.
Her social media vlogs and posts on motherhood and motivation have attracted a growing following especially among young women of colour.
