Caroline is a visual storyteller and documentarian.

With a degree in Video Journalism and Asian American Studies from Northwestern University, she hopes to use her education to highlight the voices of those often pushed to the margins and build up archives of stories that are not usually deemed important enough for formal recording. Her past projects include making and participating in collecting an oral history archive of stories of Native Americans living in Chicago (housed at the Newberry Library), producing a documentary about a cumbia band of undocumented immigrants who sing about their status to uplift their community organize for change, and filming for a documentary TV show in Johannesburg, South Africa that focused on stories of hope within a city still experiencing the aftershock of apartheid. 

She is passionate about making the media industry more equitable and equipping marginalized groups with the tools they need to tell their own stories. Caroline currently works at Free Spirit Media, an organization dedicated to connecting youth from communities of color on Chicago's West and South sides with media industry education and opportunities.
