Hannah is the current Field Communications Manager onboard Ocean Viking. Since starting her career as a London publicist, her work and study at the intersection of humanitarianism, journalism and advocacy have taken her from Africa to Latin America to the Middle East – and back again. Issues of social justice and finding ways to leverage media as a tool for positive change have remained guiding themes in Hannah's work. As part of the MSF search and rescue mission to the Central Mediterranean – one of the last bastions of a humanitarian response in this area – her current role brings these threads together. The desperate reality facing those fleeing Libya across the sea is representative of the most urgent and existential challenges we face as a species: from climate change to identity politics. For her, there is no more relevant place to be.
