Hayley is passionate about being able to tell stories on behalf of those who can’t speak for themselves. She has found herself in a prison yard in South Africa, deep in the slums in Mumbai and sat in woman’s empowerment groups in the Philippines.

Director Statement

I love meeting new people and to be able to have the chance to tell their stories. It was an honour to be involved in the ‘Tony McClean Nepal Trust’ film, to be part of such an incredible story. I wanted the viewer to feel connected to the story, for them to see that they can also be part of it and be able to make a real difference.
