Human like you
I love using visuals to capture moments and tell stories. I believe they hold the power to bring about social change and challenge stereotypes. After a visit to Malawi in 2016, I became more aware of the extreme social, economic and political struggles being faced by persons with Albinism. Not only do they have to combat skin cancer and sunburns, they also have to fight to stay alive – particularly in countries like Tanzania and Malawi, where their body parts are hunted for ritual purposes. This led me to create a visual campaign (the story of Sechaba) to buttress the fact that albinism is only a genetic condition and that persons with albinism are human just like the rest of us.
With my ability to creatively tell people’s stories, I do hope to be selected for the Faces2Hearts campaign so that I can bring to light the powerful stories that often go untold on the African continent.
My suitcases are already packed.
