Lisa is a documentary maker who filmed Hurricane Ian in Florida where she and her team focused on journalists and meteorologists who continued reporting on the disaster through the horrors of the storm. Just this year she received eight awards for her documentaries and recently won an undergraduate fellowship to research and film a documentary on the war in Ukraine. Two of her documentaries won awards from the national Broadcast Education Association. She recently received of the National IDEA Inspire the Passion Award for her work with the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder. Her goal is to understand the impact host countries have on refugees around the world. Her recent documentary is on Ukrainian refugees in the United States and their lives 1.5 years into the war. Noting that Ireland has seen significant increases in immigrant and refugee populations in recent years, she now hopes to research how Ireland deals with refugees and immigrants. Lisa will study Documentary Practice at Dublin City University.
