Creating Meaningful Change through Photography

June, 5 2014

Yasser Alaa Mobarak, an alum of iEARN-Egypt, was recently featured on the Adobe Blog, writing about his experiences using photography to affect postive social change. 

Yasser serves in the iEARN International Youth Facilitator Group, the iEARN International Social Media Committee managing the iEARN-International Facebook page, and initiated and helps to organize the annual iEARN International Photography Contests. In addition, Yasser was a member of the planning committee of the 2012 and 2013 iEARN Youth Summits, where he worked with young people from around the world.

Yasser was also a 2014 Adobe Youth Voices Awards Photo Essay Judge, has been a contributing photographer to PBS NewsHour, and has won photography awards from The International Federation of Photographic Art, National Geographic Egypt, Photographic Society of America and Youth Journalism International.

"I encourage all photographers young and old to define success not by the awards you receive or the places you’ve been, but by putting yourself out there, creating change through your work."
