Over the weekend, sports journalist Juliet Bawuah interviewed the president of the world football governing body, Gianni Infantino, on the sidelines of the FIFA Summit in Mauritania.

Juliet, in an Instagram post, showed gratitude to God for the opportunity to interview Gianni Infantino.

“His Grace keeps us going as we chart the path. Grateful,” she said after the interview.

The interview, which has since been aired on local television and radio stations in Mauritania and soon be to be aired across the rest of Africa, focused on a wide range of issues, including racism, leadership, state interference in football, women and youth football development, 2026 World Cup bid, among other interesting football-related matters.

Ms Bawuah was one of two Ghanaian journalists; the other being Gary Al-Smith, selected for the summit.

Ms Bawuah is a successful sports journalist with an impressive career portfolio.

Currently pursuing further education at Cardiff University, she has in the past worked for Citi FM, ETV, Metro TV, CafOnline and TV3.

Before Cardiff University, she worked with Euronews' sister station, Africanews. She also contributes for TRT (Turkish broadcaster) and has also made appearances on BBC.
