Jacqueline, a master’s student by day and a writer and human rights advocate by night, picked up her first pen long before she reached for her first camera.
From an early age, Jacqueline was interested in capturing what she saw around her, whether in her own backyard or off in far-away lands, with the written word.
Her international travel expeditions have taken her from the fishing villages of India, to the shantytowns of Brazil, to the deserts of the Middle East, to the back roads of Africa, and to the housing projects in Canada and the United States, amongst other regions.
With a background in communications and development, Jacqueline has worked across borders and cultures, through international women’s rights organizations including Women without Borders and the Violence Against Women Day (V-Day) Campaign, to raise awareness about the critical issues that women and girls face globally. Her writing has been featured in BUST and Faze magazines and in various online publications.
Jacqueline has since shifted her focus from writing to also include photography, which she believes helps to tell a more complete story than pen-to-paper alone.
A collaboration between words and photos has led Jacqueline to her most current venture, “From Docs to Dior: Around the World in 100 Women”, a book that showcases the work of women leaders, worldwide, through interviews and images.
Jacqueline is also a freelance motivational speaker who speaks publically about young leadership, particularly young women’s leadership, and recently had the honour of engaging an auditorium full of schoolgirls in Kenya. It was not only one of the greatest highlights of her travels, but also of her career, to date.
