Do you feel that there is one clear and socially reputable way to be considered ‘successful’ in a certain field? Not sure if a career path you are interested in even exists? Confused about how to best put your skills to use?

Come hear from three Yale Greenberg World Fellows who have had unconventional yet impactful career paths ranging from human rights to filmmaking, post-war reconstruction to innovation, from digital media to politics. 
Hrund Gunnsteinsdottir, Joshin Raghubar & Daniel Ziv will be discussing how they have navigated, transitioned from and decided on career paths in their lives.

Daniel Ziv is a documentary filmmaker, author and social justice advocate based in Indonesia. A native of Canada, he moved to Jakarta in 1999 and has since been documenting society in the country’s bustling capital. His 2014 feature-length film “Jalanan” is a gritty portrait of Indonesia through the life stories of three marginalized Jakarta street musicians. It became the first Indonesian documentary in history to be released in commercial cinemas across the country; was adopted by Jakarta’s governor as a tool for social policy change; and has traveled to 60 international film festivals and won 12 awards. Daniel founded and edited the popular, irreverent Djakarta! magazine and authored the urban pop culture bestseller Jakarta Inside Out, and Bangkok Inside Out, which was banned by the Thai government. Global PR firm Burson-Marsteller named Daniel one of Indonesia’s 10 most influential political voices on Twitter. A regular speaker at the annual Ubud Writers Festival, Daniel is a founding member of Hubud: Bali’s first co-working space, and curator at TEDxUbud. He has worked for international humanitarian aid agencies including UNICEF and USAID, and holds an MA in Southeast Asian Studies from The School of Oriental & African Studies (SOAS), University of London. Daniel is currently producing the investigative documentary Hijab Nation – an immersive journey into an Indonesia caught between secular democratic values and rising political and cultural Islam.
