‘The lenses of a refugee camp’ By Cristal Silva

Work with purpose is visceral, but Cristal only realizes it when she finds herself in the most unusual context of her life, to develop a project of 3D technology in one of the largest refugee camps in the world, she finds the freedom to reach who she always wanted to be, but until then she didn’t know how. This is a story of how a 28-year-old Brazilian woman, unhappy with her routine and the direction her life was taking, starts without any pretensions an inner journey that makes her open to change. It is then when she finds the challenge that makes her leave her comfort zone completely and face the world with different lenses, with the lenses from Kakuma camp. This process allows Cristal to connect with her most vulnerable side making her understand her real purpose, and her way of seeing it is particular.
