Multimedia storyteller Sarah Fretwell looks deeper into the intersection of the environment, people, and business with one question: “What if the new bottom line was love? Her award-winning work explores the lives of everyday people with extraordinary stories and creates the human connection that engages people on a personal level. Her work offers individuals a voice for justice, insight for solutions, and the human connection needed for international engagement. Some of her notable work and clients include the United Nations, USAID, The Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation, and Tara Expeditions Foundation.

She loves collaboration, working as a team, creating compelling stories, and living outside of the box. Some of her favorite past times include sipping on farmers market green juice, spiking her espresso with superfoods, surfing in Papua New Guinea, hitchhiking through remote jungles of Indonesia, biking Gibralter peak in Santa Barbara, visiting with Syrian Refugee families in Southern Turkey, and road tripping through Banff Canada.


Yi-Hwa is a multimedia journalist currently based in Dubai. Born in the USA with Taiwanese, Lebanese, Iraqi, and Armenian heritage (possibly more) before growing up in the UAE, she’s had an innate love for travel for as long as she can remember. To her, home isn’t a place – it’s within people and the way they make you feel. When asked “Why”, she prefers to ask herself, “Why not”, and believes everything in life can be an adventure if you just know how to find it. She graduated from Tufts University in 2006, and her work has been featured in Women’s Health – in 2014 she was the launch editor for the Middle East edition of Women’s Health magazine, where she was Editor-in-Chief for four years – as well as Good Housekeeping Middle East, VIVA Magazine, Men’s Health Middle East, Grazia Middle East, Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, Cosmopolitan Middle East, Gourmet Magazine, and Etihad Inflight magazine, to name a few. Her career has involved everything from an internship at to a regular slot on a talk radio show, and Fighting Fit Dubai, a GCC reality TV show that saw her step into the ring for some amateur boxing matches. When the gloves are off, she loves to SUP and surf, do yoga, and just be active (she’s a qualified PT) – and when she’s not writing, travelling, or doing sports, she loves to spend time with her cat (Monsieur Baguette), cook, read, sketch, and paint. She’s currently trying to finish her first novel (and a screenplay) and dreams of someday making documentary films.
