THE TEAM

 
 

Angana Narula

CO-FOUNDER, Op-ed and Photography EDITOR

Angana is a Bangkok-ian living in London. She has an MSc in Human Rights from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and a BA Hons in English Literature and History from Durham University. She has previously worked on TEDxBangkok’s editorial team and spends time being a professional feminist at Pratthanadee Foundation, Thailand. In storytelling pursuits, her focus is always on humanity - where we are now, why we see the world the way we do, and where we can go next. When she’s not writing, she’s pursuing film photography and probably planning her next travel adventure.

Arzucan Askin

CO-FOUNDER, environment EDITOR

Arzu is a BA Geography graduate from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers (RGS-IBG). Her work as a political ecologist examines issues at the intersection of nature and society, such as climate change, race and environmental justice, human-wildlife conflict, food security, and climate change. After supporting several humanitarian relief efforts in Turkey and Greece, she spent two years working on human trafficking issues after natural disasters in Asia. When she is not conducting research expeditions on the gendered impacts of climate change in Cuba, she’s almost always dancing Argentine Tango or searching for a new place to dive with sharks.

Marta Santivanez Fernandez

CO-FOUNDER, investigations EDITOR

Marta is a journalist and researcher currently exploring the intersection of migration, labor, gender and climate change. She is passionate about why people move, and what pushes restrictions upon this movement. Her reporting critically reflects on policy decisions behind notable events. She has a broad international experience working and volunteering in Spain, the United States, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Cuba and England. She is half-way through an MSc in International Social and Public Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and holds a BA in Politics from SOAS, University of London. Beyond her career, she loves a good book of fiction and a dark joke over a pint. She will be found at any given time with at least one loaf of bread in her bag.

JULIETTE Chalant

Communications Director

Juliette is a feminist and activist, currently studying MSc Empires, Colonialism and Globalisation at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Before moving to London, she previously worked as project coordinator in a non-profit in Brussels and in the communications committee for the Belgian feminist organisation Collecti.e.f 8 maars. Fascinated by power relations, systems of dominance and resistance to such structures and convinced by the need for the convergence of struggles (feminist, de-colonial, class, and environmental), her goal is to impact change that is effective and powerful, amplifying voices that are so often dismissed. An avid coffee-addict, her favorite past-time is spending hours in thrift stores and flea markets searching for her next oversized sweater.

Grace Yeo

Creative advisor

Grace is a third-year BSc Politics and International Relations student at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and Events Manager at Women in Foreign Policy, a platform that aims to inspire young women to pursue a career in foreign policy. Aside from her dabbles in foreign policy and international development, she freelances in graphic design, videography and anything else digital. You’d probably be more likely to find her in a burger joint than a lecture theatre during the week, (un)fortunately.
