How a Flashlight Educates a Nation

Valerie Visani

About This Project

Valerie Visani is an alumna of the University of Toronto, with a degree in Political Science. Shortly after her undergraduate studies, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue law school with an interest in entertainment law.
Life threw her curve balls and instead of working in Hollywood, she relocated to Africa. Now living in the
Democratic Republic of the Congo, she now serves as a visiting professor at a local university, teaching
underprivileged students with harrowing stories. Spending years at the University of Toronto learning about development in the global south, she now lives in one of the world’s poorest countries, seeking to
bring consciousness to the struggles of education in the Congo.
