Stories from Mostar
I spent my summer teaching journalism and multimedia storytelling at the United World College in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. I had the opportunity to work with the Mostar Summer Youth Programme, a unique project that brings together Bosnian youth from across the region to gain ideas and unlock their passion for education.
I worked with both local and international teachers from the fields of media to business. My multimedia storytelling class “Stories from Mostar” challenged students to use diverse forms of media to share the multiple narratives of Bosnia and Herzegovina in a way that will inspire understanding and creates awareness.
