Ankita Bellary: #LCJB16 winner, Pacific

Ankita Bellary is from Queensland, Australia, and the winner of the 2016 Leading Change Journalism Bursary for the Pacific region.

She is passionate about how journalism can bring about awareness to social justice issues.

She says, “I hope to tell the stories that we must know about and engage in if we want to incite positive social, cultural and legislative change... I want to empower those who have been silenced, by voicing their experiences, as well as those who are leading the way for change – women’s rights and anti-discrimination activists, environmentalists, human rights advocates and lawyers, just to name a few.”
