Jessica Hill

Jessica is an accomplished freelance journalist who has been based in Abu Dhabi for almost four years and is a regular contributor to both and The National for business, arts, life and news. Before coming to the UAE and raising two children, Jessica spent three years teaching English around the world, so she has a solid background in education as well as journalism; the changes happening in the UAE education system are an area of particular interest for her. She is as comfortable interviewing stars on the red carpet at the Dubai Film Festival as she is reviewing summer camps, getting business tips from rising entrepreneurs or finding the best schools for Arabic tuition.
