Introducing myself and my journal: Waving from India

About Me:
I grew up in Bombay and moved to the US to study communications and theatre. Then worked at Berkeley Community Media, a public TV station near San Francisco, as a manager for almost six years. At BCM, I learned about the concept of using media as a tool for change and enabling local residents to voice their concerns.
I researched Indian media policy at the graduate level in San Francisco State University and became keen to return to India where the field is still burgeoning.
Last year I was thrilled to have received a Digital Media and Learning competition award (sponsored by the MacArthur Foundation) which funded my project (WAVE) for its first year. I am now exploring sustainability options to continue the successful pilot project.

My Passions:
Creating, empowering, sharing, learning

My Challenges:
Funds, writing, infrastructure

My Vision for the Future:
A support system for alternative voices in India

My Areas of Expertise:
Community Media, editing video, organising

Welcome onboard!

Hi Sapna,

Just checked WAVE's website and 'am totally in love with it. Based on a simple idea, this project has the potential of making a huge difference. A friendly suggestion - would be great if you could link back to WAVE's website by mentioning it here. It would let people know more about your project.

Glad to have you on board and look forward to having a positive interaction with you.
