Clare Oh (2008)

Clare Oh graduated from the OHMA program in 2010, where she focused her academic research on "narrative crisis" among people with mental illness who struggle with losing and re-taking agency and the "authorship" of their own life stories. She graduated from New York University with a B.S. in Mass Media and Communications as well as from New School University with a Master of Arts in International Affairs. After 20 years of living and working in New York City, she now lives in London where she serves as the director of communications for Pump Aid, an international organization focused on delivering water, sanitation and hygiene services for the rural poor in sub-Saharan Africa. She is looking to create an oral history project, called “Water Stories,” featuring interviews of women living in marginalised communities whose lives have been seriously impacted by the lack of clean water in Malawi.
