I recently had the opportunity to shoot an event for the Superior Medical Foundation which was raising money for an amazing woman in Western Kenya named Lilian Lokiwial who is working towards changing attitudes towards female genital mutilation. It’s a gigantic task for one woman, so the Superior Medical Foundation wanted to lend a hand.
While in Kenya, I met Lilian and learned first hand how ambitious she is. The first of her tribe to go to university, and to pursue a higher education.
Right now she is working towards becoming a broadcaster, and I have no doubt she will achieve her goal.
Here are a few photos from the evening:
P.S. To see Lilian’s first video piece -shot and edited by me (circa 2011)- take a look here.
