I lost my mother during the Covid-19 pandemic. The agonizing grief was painful. I felt lost. 

I was trying to build my life both personally and professionally, but every time I took a step forward, life pushed me five steps back.

Orato’s trust in me and my abilities came as a breath of fresh air. I survived.

Orato is a safe place; a wonderful place that gives me a sense of fulfillment, a chance to interact with unique people across the world, and a platform to write unbiased stories.

It gives me what most journalists would die for: true freedom, recognition, and appreciation for my work.

Orato ensures verification and fact-checking. The stories are insightful, the subjects are real, and the reporting is in-depth.

They keep it simple; they keep it real.

Orato has an inclusive workplace: one that accepts, values, and nurtures its team’s diversity.

It is a pleasure to work with a website that is truly international, that always has your back, and that helps you grow as a human being.
