I'm a journalism graduate from Texas, currently working with Latino immigrants in Virginia.
I have studied and worked in Costa Rica, Slovakia, Nicaragua and Texas.
My current project is with the Roma Press Agency of Slovakia. We are trying to produce a documentary about human trafficking in Roma communities.
I enjoy reading and writing, running,backpacking, kayaking, yoga, playing guitar and photography.
My passions include
- forced migration and refugee issues
- education and empowerment
- writing for change
- immigrants' rights
- promoting ethnic identity
- genocide prevention
- culture and language exchange
I also have a blog about travel and social justice called Travel Bugg.
Thanks for stopping by!
My Vision for the Future
That Romani people will be empowered, receive rights and fight discrimination
That refugees, immigrants and asylum-seekers will experience healing and be celebrated in their new countries
That misrepresented women and groups will find their voices through writing, blogging, art and media.
That women and minorities will be represented in science, tech and government
That women and men will come together, look past semantics and work for change.
That people will express themselves and not be afraid because of their gender, orientation, religion, lack of religion, race or ethnicity.
That everyone will be able to travel and experience different cultures and opportunities
