My name is Mirella Cockerill and I recently graduated from the University of Edinburgh where I studied Social Anthropology. I have worked within journalism and publishing for five years and editing for The Forum for Global Human Rights has provided me the exciting opportunity to combine my passion for journalism and my degree to document and share important instances of human experience. I am interested in telling stories of the individual. By channeling the big topic of human rights through personal testimonies, I hope to produce articles that are accessible and inspire empathy, compassion, and action.
