It is not my aim to speak for the voiceless, they have their own voice which should be heard.
I am aware that it is my privileged position that enables me to work in a world defined by injustice. While I can travel freely to countries in the global south, the situation is different from a reverse perspective. However, I feel a legitimacy and need of telling stories from multiple angles. When taken with responsibility, awareness and precaution, the gaze of the outsider can add a valid contribution to conversations about social political phenomena.
Saying that, working towards the equal access for storytellers, regardless their identity, needs to be priority.
