A little bit about you:
I am a graduate student at York University getting my Master's of Arts in Development Studies. I recently returned to the Toronto area from a summer spent conducting my thesis fieldwork in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on the practices surrounding photography and development.

A little bit about your role at PWB:
As a part of the Production team, I will be helping manage the relationship with our Community Partners and the related projects, focusing on the Africa region. I will also be assisting members who are interested in these projects in order to make sure everyone is happy with their experience working with PWB!

What's the best part of your job?/ What are you most looking forward to in your new role?
I am most looking forward to connecting with our Community Partners in the Africa region to see what stories they have to tell through photography.
