Tijana Huysamen

At the young age of 24 I packed up my life into one suitcase and embarked on a journey of self-exploration. I realised that to become a successful journalist and visual media producer, I needed to experience and understand the world in which we live in. Little did I know that this journey would change me, inspire me and allow me to see places in the world that many people only dream of.

I traveled through 35 countries in the past 4 years from Africa to Asia to the Oceanic to Europe to the USA - from the richest to the poorest, from the East to the West. I learnt purely what it means to survive, what it means to cross linguistic borders, what it means to be accepting of others no matter what their world views are.  I really believe that evolutionary media is the tool to changing the world, especially visual media. Powerful imagery is what has stopped wars, made presidents step down, brought races and genders and cultures closer together. Everybody has a story, as sad and as beautiful as the next. From traveling around the world and crossing cultural boundaries I realized that every human being is ultimately the same. We hurt, bleed, dream and want 'the same' things.

As an African myself, I feel I have gained perspective of two continents most people don't understand: Asia and Africa. The ways of life that have been culturally implemented over centuries untouched by Western ideologies.  From traveling I realized that media is the only element that can cross all dimensions. Media can bring about a global order and change the way in which all cultures can move into a new worldly dimension. Social media is the new way in which people are taking back power and choice. Nowadays everyone is a voyeur ~ a somewhat social journalist. The future of journalism is finding new ways of connecting people's everyday stories by bridging the gap between cultures, races and genders.  My job as a journalist and a visual media producer is to show people that differences and similarities is what makes the world a beautiful place. It is to push individuals into bringing about change in their daily lives so that they can understand one another's stories so that we can all inhabit this earth together and be free from prejudice.  ~ Tijana Huysamen
