FELLOWSHIPS

I have two global fellowships under my belt. Both encompassed storytelling and a chance to meet and interact with people from different cultures and learn from their experiences. With a focus on trauma journalism and peace and conflict resolution, these have been amazing opportunities which have helped me continue on a path which helps people to change the way they think.
