I am thrilled to announce that I have won the EAW National Geographic Award during the Eddie Adams Workshop 2020. The award is given to one of the hundred selected participants of the workshop to recognize their commitment to both the values of the Eddie Adam's legacy and their passion for their projects.

Being selected for the Eddie Adams Workshop was already an extreme honour in itself. Having the privilege to learn and being mentored is something I will be eternally grateful for. Seeing the works of all these super talented and gifted people, and being part of a community is an absolute joy. But being honoured with the National Geographic Award is truly empowering. 

The path to get to the place where I am now has not been easy and the award is a tremendous recognition that means the world to me.
