Wimana Beatrice is a young journalist and Congolese refugee who grew up in Kyangwali Refugee Settlement. Beatrice finished secondary school and then completed a journalism training certificate through CineLab Akademie and the Refugee Youth Voices project. Beatrice's story was featured in the award-winning documentary 'Sauti.' She was resettled to the United States from Kyangwali in 2019. She lives with her husband and 1-year old daughter and continues to work to improve her community. ‘Life in My Shoe’ is Beatrice’s first film.
Refugee Youth Voices is a community-based, participatory media program to equip and empower young refugees (ages 15-24) with practical, employable skills at all levels of storytelling, filmmaking, videography, photography, and digital media. This kind of storytelling and filmmaking for and about East African refugees aims to put the narrative and images of African refugees directly into the hands of youth who have grown up in refugee settlements. We firmly believe this is a powerful step toward creating more humanised and supportive perspectives and policies affecting refugee communities around the world.
Life In My Shoe is a short film written and directed by Wimana Beatrice, a young refugee from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Beatrice was featured in NeeNee Productions 2016 film Sauti (Voice).
