A very personal piece published in The Pool

Thanks to The Pool for giving me a platform to share this story. I felt anxious writing something so personal that would actually be read by real readers.

Defying traditional gender roles for Positive News

I contributed a wee piece to #94 of Positive News, a beautiful independent magazine which publishes stories about progress and possibility. This is a collaboration with a good friend, writer and documentary photographer Eva Clifford. This article is part of the series "Working your Way," which profiles people working in careers that have traditionally been associated with the opposite sex. Our story is about Christine Kachataryan and the female de-miners of Nagorno-Karabakh.
