Momondo published an interview with Ami Vitale about her work traveling the world, covering stories that unite humanity – be it endangered animals, local communities or social unrest.
Ami has spent the past 18 years traveling from country to country, telling one story at a time.

She has made it her mission to tell stories that challenge existing prejudices.
