Multimedia Storyteller

Jayeeta Bhowmick creates alternative paths of living for women who are trapped in lives of prostitution in the second largest red-light area of Kolkata, India. I filmed and edited more than 25 videos over the summer of 2015 for Global Women’s Leadership Network (GWLN), a Silicon Valley-based nonprofit that empowers women leaders like Jayeeta to develop their own businesses and nonprofits. The women meet in Silicon Valley for a weeklong “residency,” then return to their home countries to continue working for another six months via Skype, email and phone with their US-based business coaches.
