GaraI was born and raised in Seattle, WA and moved to New York City in 2011. In 2013, I received a Master’s at The New School in International Affairs with a focus in media. My background includes photojournalism; earned media campaigns for Planned Parenthood Votes! Northwest; film and print editor, writer and social media producer for UNDP Gender Team; Research Associate at The Council on Hemispheric Affairs; Contributor to Feet in 2 Worlds; and Editorial Production at Wetpaint.Inc. My interests lie in human rights and the use of media campaigns as a means for advocacy, awareness, and change.
