Linda Givetash is a Canadian-South African freelance journalist based in Johannesburg. Her work has appeared in print, digital and broadcast media outlets around the globe.
She brings complex and emotional stories about health, the environment and human rights to life with character-driven narratives. Her work has ranged from news stories on devastating wildfires in British Columbia for The Canadian Press to features about water security in the Middle East for NBC News.
