Traditional news feels quite sanitised, quite statisticky. We're bombarded with images, but often, you don't see the human stories, or if you do, it's only for 60 seconds, max.
When I first arrived in Cambodia, I found it very buzzy and very happening. It seemed like quite a cool place, and everyone, tourists and locals, seemed to be in good spirits!
In Cambodia, education is really a luxury, and many kids are thrown into work as early as possible. This means they can help support their parents, as often the parents don't even earn a living wage.
Generally, I'm quite chilled about my looks, but I'm gutted if my skin's bad.
The few pounds we spend for an item of clothing isn't the true cost - the real cost is the millions of gallons of clean water that was used to grow the fabric, or the millions of gallons of fresh water that was polluted with toxic chemicals to dye the clothes.
The Democratic Republic of Congo was the most unbelievable place I have ever seen. Now, I'm not normally a massive fan of landscapes, but the country was just so so stunning!
I had no desire to go to Iraq. I never wanted to go to Mosul. I'm not a war correspondent. No part of me thrives on the adrenaline or anything like that.
You have to keep time aside for life, which I haven't done enough over the past couple years.
I love making documentaries. But I do like other factual entertainment as well, and I like doing the lighter stuff.
My father had his demons; our relationship was difficult and fractured. But I don't ever think, 'Poor me,' I just feel blessed that I had my mother. She was such a great mum.
I love my job, but it's intense, and it's serious, and it's straight, and it can be really harrowing.
I'd been to Mosul and back and forth to Iraq and Latin America, and it was all quite harrowing... and I felt like I wanted a month or two of total escapism.
I'm still hesitant to call myself a journalist. I see myself as a documentary maker who is trusted with hard-hitting current affairs issues.
I think BBC3 gave me my first commissions because I wasn't a middle-class, highbrow journalist. I was able to speak to the contributors on a level that perhaps some journalists don't.
I'm such a homebody. It's actually quite tragic because, if I'm out for drinks, I'll constantly be thinking about when it's acceptable for me to leave.
I know some people believe impartiality is key, and it's necessary in some situations, but in others - if something is so fundamentally wrong, why do we have to make out we're impartial?
I knew that extremism in Luton was a really important issue to try and cover, even though it could be very awkward for me at times!
If I had tried to adopt the tone and vibe of other serious journalists, that would have come across as insincere, forced, and false.
I feel like no-one likes a sob story. No-one likes to hear Moanie Margaret.
I can nod off anywhere. Once, when I was little, I even slept through a car crash.
