BFA, Integrated Media(2010)
I am an African-Canadian graphic artist engaged in critical arts-based qualitative research.
From January to May 2019, I interviewed 35 adults in 10 countries on Skype about “What makes a great story?” Participants viewed three digital stories created by youth formerly in foster care in Canada.
The primary aims of my Ph.D. dissertation are to discover: what makes a great story, and who should see the stories? Around the world, representation of adopted youth, youth in care, and youth formerly in care in the media is unrealistic. There is tremendous potential for adopted youth, youth in care, and youth formerly in care to use their stories to advocate for positive social change and permanent adoption.
This Ph.D. dissertation contributes to a core study at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and HeART Lab,“Youth Speak Out Storytellers (YSOS)”.
