As far back as I can remember, I have always wanted to work in the humanitarian sector. After graduating with a master degree in development, I therefore went on to work for an NGO for a couple of years – first as a Proposal, Monitoring & Evaluation Assistant and later on as a Communications Officer.
It soon became clear to me that something was missing in my worklife, though – I needed to communicate in more ways than just words on paper, and I needed to be more engaged with the people, who were benefiting from our work. Upon this realization, it quickly dawned on me that I could do that by incorporating another passion of mine into my workflow; namely photography. This, and two years of additional photography studies, has let me to where I am today – on the path to become a humanitarian photographer!
When I am not in the field photographing, or in the office post-processing my images, you will find me either reading a book, taking online courses to further educate myself, having fun with friends and family, or off traveling and exploring the world with my wonderful husband.
