Kristy Woudstra is a storyteller with an insatiable curiosity. Her interests are broad, but her passion is to write about human rights issues both at home and overseas. She has travelled the globe to cover stories in Niger, Uganda, Brazil, South Africa and Mexico. She's honoured to have picked up several awards along the way. Her first book, Highrise (Firefly, 2019), was nominated for a Forest of Reading Award.
