She states that “the impact of journalism and documentary photography with integrity is above all, fundamental to altering the culture that we all contribute to. Understanding that now more than ever, we need a plurality of perspective and voice in our media, it is vital for moving forward that we not only reach the sustainable development goals set by the UN but to evolve and diversify the needs that are yet to be identified within our global community. Media is a tool that can do this.”
