Embracing Purposeful Projects: My Commitment to Empowering Communities

I am passionate about creating impactful visual media that tells compelling stories and fosters positive change. Being involved in projects like The Big Issue’s Women’s Workforce is not just a job for me—it’s a mission I wholeheartedly embrace.

I thrive on collaboration, creativity, and the opportunity to shine a light on meaningful initiatives. When I worked with The Big Issue to document the journeys of incredible women like Tina, I was reminded of the profound impact that visual storytelling can have. These projects allow me to use my skills not only to create beautiful content but to amplify voices and stories that need to be heard.

Working with The Big Issue’s Women’s Workforce, I had the privilege of capturing the resilience and strength of women overcoming homelessness and disadvantage. Each frame, each interview, and each moment I documented was a testament to their courage and determination. I believe that through my visual media, I can help share their stories with the world, raising awareness and inspiring action.

My involvement in projects like this goes beyond creating content; it’s about being part of a movement. The Big Issue’s commitment to providing safe, flexible, and empowering work opportunities aligns with my values. I am proud to showcase how these initiatives bring tangible benefits to communities, transforming lives and offering hope.

I understand the importance of purpose-driven work. I am dedicated to collaborating with organisations that make a real difference. By highlighting the efforts of The Big Issue and similar initiatives, I aim to inspire others to support and engage with these vital causes.

I look forward to continuing my journey with organisations like The Big Issue. Each project is an opportunity to learn, grow, and contribute to something greater than myself. Together, we can create a powerful narrative of change, one story at a time.

Thank you for trusting me to tell your stories. I am honoured to be part of such transformative work and excited for the future projects that await us.
