Chelsey Smith (M.A.) is a media and communications professional, and Global Citizen devoted to universal education and equality. Chelsey’s professional repertoire includes journalism, marketing and branding, movement building and campaign management. Her publication “The Technology of Hope: Twitter and the Bring Back Our Girls Campaign” examines the role of technology in new social movements, and how NGOs can best position campaigns for traction.
Beyond an array of volunteer work in Canada, she has always been passionate about peace and justice in a global context, and worked to support the rights of children in Ghana (2008), to combat gender-based violence in Swaziland (2013), and to rebrand a movement toward transformative feminist society in Tanzania (2016). Working in international development is a challenge that Chelsey tackles with intense motivation for social change and human rights.
