Barbara Woolsey

I’m Barbara Woolsey, a journalist, writer and television presenter from Canada. I’m 1/2 Filipino, 1/2 Canadian (1/4 Scottish, 1/4 Irish, to be specific).

Since graduating from the University of Regina with a degree in journalism and political science in 2011, I’ve been on a whirlwind adventure: working as a journalist in three different continents across multimedia platforms. In 2013, I traveled to 12 different countries for work and pleasure! Phew.


It all started when I won Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP) Fellowship in 2010, becoming an intern at Thailand’s leading English daily newspaper, the Bangkok Post. Afterwards, I worked as a television reporter and radio current affairs producer
 for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in my lovely hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan. I would eventually head back to Bangkok to host two Englis-speaking programs in Thailand for In Channel (True Visions 92).

Now I’m based in Berlin and Bangkok, regularly contributing to publications in Southeast Asia, Canada and Germany.
