Didi Schanche is deputy senior supervising editor on NPR's award-winning International Desk. She also is NPR's Africa and Latin America editor.

A journalist since 1981, Schanche landed her first reporting job as freelance correspondent for The Jerusalem Post in Cairo, Egypt. She returned to the United States and got a master's degree in journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism in 1982. With the ultimate goal of becoming a foreign correspondent, Schanche spent several months banging on doors and was hired by The Associated Press as a reporter based in Montgomery, Ala. After two years, she was transferred to the foreign desk at AP headquarters in New York. Two years later, she was sent to Nairobi, Kenya, to cover East Africa.
