Camilla (b. 1989) is a freelance journalist born and raised in Southern Italy, who writes about minorities, social justice, youth, cultural issues and forms of underground resistance. In 2015 she went for a two-week holiday to Jordan. In a bizarre turn of events, she ended up living in Amman for nearly two years, managing the team's editorial efforts online at a pan-Arab news and favoring the manifold intersections of business and cultural shifts in her writings. So far Camilla has covered women's rights and people-centered stories, observing how social innovation can be tool for empowerment, gender inclusiveness and financial stability in developing countries. Her ongoing focus includes minorities and impoverished communities who carve out their own realities out of adverse socio-political circumstances and natural disasters. Besides Jordan, she has lived in the UK, China, and the Flanders (Belgium), with a few recent stints in India and Lesotho. A graduate in Slavonic studies andcommunication for international relations, she has recently developed a genuine interest in photography/video and now hopes to combine this skill with her longtime love for print to explore today's most pressing issues. Her photography is informed by her interest in questioning notions of identity and structures of power that dictate inequalities within societies. Camilla has long contributed to IWI (International Women's Initiative), a London-based nonprofit working globally to raise awareness on women's issues.
She has just completed her post-graduate degree in International Journalism at SOAS University of London, where she strengthened her focus on gendered migration and diaspora, looking at how the Global South is represented across contemporary media outlets. She is currently based in Bari, in Italy's deep south.
