Life in My Shoe

Wimana Beatrice, an aspiring journalist and Congolese refugee, recounts her educational journey in Kyangwali Refugee Settlement. Beatrice invites us into her world to understand the challenges facing young women East African refugees. Through her own eyes and voice, Beatrice personalizes the trauma of leaving the DR Congo as a young child, the struggle to access school as an older girl student, and the realities of growing up in a refugee camp.

“Life in my Shoe” is a collaborative film made through a Uganda-based journalism training program for young refugees and a US-based documentary production group.

Directed by Wimana Beatrice (Uganda)
