I am so proud to announce that Cristi has received this award for her work in the creation of the Global Press Institute, and for she has done to advance the lives of women reporters and the role they play in international journalism.
Here is a video that was produced about our work in Nepal, which I think does a wonderful job capturing the inspiring work Cristi has been doing since she started GPI.
It is a complete honor to get to work with Cristi, and Maura, and the rest of the GPI family, and to be able to provide photography training so that they can begin to produce powerful images as another tool for them to tell important stories from their communities.
We have a lot in the works around this photojournalism program so stay tuned! And congratulations again to Cristi, you truly are an inspiration to all of us.
