With the ongoing drought affecting East African countries and livelihoods, water continues to be a major concern. I created a short video, entitled ‘Water Crisis in Africa‘ with CES Graphic Media and Ronnie Burrage to bring attention to the issue.
I was fortunate to have my 11 year old son, Farris, tag along with me during the first phase of my dissertation research in Ethiopia and Djibouti. The experience was amazing for both of us. We bonded and Farris amazed his teachers this past year with his ability to tie classroom topics to broader global issues of poverty, inequality, environmental change, etc.
