Mohsin Mohi Ud Din is an artist, storytelling activist, and founder of the award-winning global non profit, #MeWe International Inc. (#MeWeIntl). #MeWeIntl is a global network of artists, scientists, and community-builders who design methodologies and tools for creative expression and communication skills-building to advance the mental health, human rights, and representation of every one. For over 15 years, Mohsin has been a leader in storytelling innovation for culture change and community-building. He has scaled his methodology across more than 15 countries, from valley of Kashmir, to the Syrian refugee camps in the Middle East, to the mountains of Morocco, Honduras, and Mexico. His movement has supported more than 10,000 vulnerable youth and caregivers and dozens of community building organizations fighting violence, forced displacement, incarceration, and poverty. Mohsin previously worked for human rights organizations such as Human Rights First, and worked in the Strategic Communications Division for the MDGs and SDGs for the United Nations in New York. His work has received honors from SOLVE MIT at the UN in 2018, the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations in 2012, Open Ideo Education in Emergencies Award in 2019, and others. In 2009, Mohsin received a Fulbright Scholarship to pilot his methodologies in Morocco. Over the years his words and visual pieces are featured in VICE News, Al Jazeera, Huffington Post, and The Nation. As as survivor himself of violence from war, abuse, and discrimination, Mohsin’s values and mission aim to architect pathways for the sufferers to be the healers, for the silenced to be the noise makers, and the dismissed and underrepresented to be the culture transformers.
