Hey everyone,

I am Joe-Ann, and have been offered the opportunity to study at the prestigious London School of Economics for the MSc in Media and Communications, commencing September 2021 and need your support to help me get there.

In recent years, I have witnessed increased stigmatisation of people of colour- especially women – in the media. It has come to my attention that a significant proportion of the Mauritian society was left out of media participation and of the citizenship discourse, based on intersectional questions, such as race and gender.

I am driven by the desire to have an impact. By building on the past 10 years in the Media and Communications industry, I want to further explore how new data-driven media and technologies inform questions of democracy and of citizenship participation in Mauritius, especially for vulnerable groups, like women of colour.

Early 2021, I was made redundant and this has put me in a position that has, unfortunately, stalled my educational ambitions.

I am a self-driven woman, I have always been! My story is one where overcoming hurdles along the way has been part of the journey; back in 2007 I was determined to find a route towards pursuing tertiary education overseas. My parents could not afford to finance this dream, and I set myself the goal of finding a way. I worked hard with determination for my HSC exams and was awarded the State Scholarship by the Mauritian Government to study in Australia.

I am the result of generations of hard work, and feel that it is my duty to keep growing into a critical media thinker and practitioner who can positively contribute to the community as Mauritius recovers from the effects of COVID-19.

I want us to believe that we can be and do better both individually and as a community, and need you to achieve my goals.
