In recognition of her contributions to the communities she is a part of and collaborates with, Komi was recognised by the University of Melbourne with the Leaders in Community Award.

Komi has been collaborating with IPCS since 2019 as our photographer and as the convenor of our writing circle, gathering weekly on Fridays.

In recognition of her contributions to the communities she is a part of and collaborates with, Komi was recognised by the University of Melbourne with the Leaders in Community Award.

“While convening the writing circle at the Institute of Postcolonial Studies had typically been a face-to-face affair, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic changed the way we met. Carlos and I had to think up alternative ways of being connected with the writing community, and I started organising online writing circles. We’ve built a small team of volunteer co-conveners, taking turns running the writing circle on Fridays.”

In July 2020 Komi graduated with a Master of Education, from the Melbourne Graduate School of Education, specialising in Equity, Diversity, Social Change, and Policy. 

Komi is currently involved in research with the UNESCO Chair for Cultural Diversity and Social Justice at the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship & Globalisation.

We’re delighted about Komi’s award
