My strategy of education is to promote, teach and foster high-quality national and international emerging professionals in the field of journalism and photography, by upskilling their talents through my scholarship programmes from the majority world and underrepresented communities/countries in media practice, visual journalism, narrative, ethics, business and entrepreneurship.
In doing so I aim to facilitate a culture of sharing information and knowledge which would help enhance the democratization of public narrative.
