Soula is a photographer, ceramic artist, and community worker. She is currently pursuing a PhD in Depthy Psychology with an emphasis on Community Psychology, Liberation Psychology, and Ecopsychology. For her dissertation, she created a gardening and food skills curriculum that employs an empowerment-focused pedagogy, designed for incarcerated individuals. Through this work, she seeks to provide a space for individual and community empowerment by reconnecting individuals with the very old and therapeutic tradition of food cultivation. Soula is passionate about the power of food to reconnect us with the Earth and each other. She is keenly interested in the ways ancestral explorations happen through food via uncovering old family and cultural recipes. She is a community-builder; whether teaching, creating art, hosting and organizing community events, or crafting visual narratives through her art, Soula engages her work and the people she encounters with an eye towards the possibility of building and strengthening community.
