This will inspire her designs and be published in their local newspaper they share over mobile. She wanted to find a way to support women in rural communities, so she got her Kenyan friend who's an engineer in Nairobi to come up with a very simple guide on how to set up remote technology in rural villages to connect to the internet with a mobile. She feels great that her support is helping communities not only find a voice, but use the technology for other things they need. Women from rural communities

She discovers this empty building while walking to grab lunch and thinks this could be a great place for her new design studio, as well as for other activities. She thinks about who in her network could help her repurpose this building. She contacts two friends who now work in call centres, but one of them, Francesco, used to be a carpenter, while Manos, used to be a plumber. She proposes to them that if they can repurpose it, then can live in this building, while she also uses it as a design studio. Francesco and Manos came to London before to look for work, but couldn't find anything, so she thinks this could be their opportunity to return to the city with work and a place they can call and make their home. She also has a deep enough relationship with them to know that even though they work in a call centre, they have other skills which are critical to restoring this empty buildiing. She feels solidarity with her two friends that they can finally enjoy the city. Francesco from Italy and Manos from Greece
