Meet @mariamdwedar - she’s been a member of the VC since the get go. Currently she’s working on a few different shoots: the mental health of refugees trapped on the islands in Greece, the stories of the wives and children of former IS fighters in Iraq/Syria, a portrait of a psychiatrist (for victims of torture) and artist in Egypt, the lives and political views of youth in Iran, and a couple of personal projects in Cuba and Palestine. Here she is looking like a boss setting up her next shot 💪🎥 #VCmember #VCspotlight
