Vera Sprothen

Senior Writer
Apparently, the first word Vera ever spoke was “paper”. This, according to her Mum, explains why she’s been drawn to play with words more than barbie dolls from an early age. As our senior writer and editor with over 20 years of experience in global news journalism, she finds deep joy in making complicated topics effortless to read – and breaking up her desk routine to volunteer as a surf instructor with Waves of Wellness, a charity using ocean therapy to help people overcome mental health struggles.
