I have worked for over 15 years on long-term participatory photography projects with refugee youth in the UK and Nepal.  With the aim of supporting integration, self-development and self-advocacy, I have led a range of photo-based projects for refugee youth including vocational training, photo advocacy and activism, self-expression and creative workshops, digital storytelling, mentoring and to support integration and language acquisition.
