Part two of a two-part series on sexting for Independent Leader magazine.
The issue of sexting is a major cause for concern in schools across the UK; I spoke with the headmaster of a school who has first-hand experience of the damage it can do. Part one - Independent Leader magazine.
I travelled into the hardest hit areas of Nepal to capture the rebuilding efforts of Women for Peace and Democracy, Nepal. I conducted the field interview with Shobha Shrestha and shot all the footage (excluding the footage from 2015/immediate disaster relief aid). I also edited and scripted the package, which I then sent back to David from World Accord to voice.
