Chenjelani Whatley


It is difficult to place Chenjelani into any one box. Since graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Design from Curtin University in Australia, she has been a graphic designer, art director, performance artist, writer, podcast producer, video producer, language teacher and event co-ordinator. When asked what she enjoyed most about working in these fields the answer is simple, Chenjelani loves to learn, think, create, share and educate.

The MDM program allows her the opportunity to do all the above and so much more. On successful completion, her goal is to design and develop educational platforms that make stimulating, interactive, media-rich content accessible to everyone, especially young learners from low-income communities in developing countries.

She believes that having access to some of the best brains in the business (aka the MDM faculty) will allow her to make these plans a reality and help her do her part to change the world for the better, in her own little way.
