I created these Illustrations to accompany the life stories of refugees, it's a part of the editorial design for the Obakki Fundation & Emily Carr University charitable project - A Handful of Stories. It's a project dedicated to rising the awareness of refugee crisis.

An exhibition was held at Emily Carr University, to showcase the deliverable of this project, and to celebrate the stories of hope and resilience.
