One Day, I Will: Aspirations of girls caught in crises revealed in stunning photographs

30 July 2019

From becoming a school teacher to training as a football player, 40 girls between the ages of 6 and 18 trapped in humanitarian crises shared their dreams with award-winning photographer Vincent Tremeau.

A photographer for the UN office coordinating humanitarian affairs, known as OCHA, Mr. Tremeau explained that “it started as a game” in which the girls dressed up in clothes depicting what they would like to be as adults.

At the opening of an exhibit that spread from the lobby of the historic UN Headquarters building to its gates outside, Mr. Tremeau spoke with UN News's Liz Scaffidi about the exhibition: One Day, I Will.
