Kathryn has been working for the past ten years as a humanitarian and social justice advocate. Her experience has brought her from organizing rural communities in the southwest on behalf of President Barack Obama to her most recent role as the Chief Operating Officer of Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ), a non-profit organization that encourages peace and social justice and addresses issues of poverty around the world. Kathryn was compelled to visit Pakistan after learning about the country's education crisis and the complexity of gender equality in the region. Her empathetic nature and years of experience in the developing world give her a unique lens through which to view the world. This is her first film.
