Prior to founding The Pixel Project, Regina was nominated in the Education and Public Service category of The Malaysian Women’s Weekly’s “Great Women of Our Time” Awards 2008 for her innovative awareness-raising work for the breast cancer cause.

She also has a First-Class BA (Hons) in English from Royal Holloway University of London.

Carol started her work in the anti-violence movement as a therapist helping survivors heal from sexual assault and domestic violence. She now engages with several organizations in her work to end violence against women and girls. In addition to being the Secretary and CFO of The Pixel Project, she is the Development Director of the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, an advisory board member of End Violence Against Women International, a governing body member of Virginia Center for Public Press and a producer/talk show host of three radio talk shows: The V Word, Inspire Indeed, Community Conversations on Recovery.

Like some of our volunteers, Bridget has not had first-hand experience with violence against women or with domestic violence. However, in hearing the story behind The Pixel Project, she was excited to pitch in and help get The Pixel Project off the ground. Knowing that the money raised through this project could maintain the only outlets some women have to get out of violent situations is truly inspiring, as is the challenge of seeing if we can mobilise the world to raise $1 million for this worthy cause.
Having years of project management experience, Bridget is no stranger to organization and getting people on the same page. She’s excited to lend these talents to The Pixel Project. When not working or volunteering for The Pixel Project, Bridget is an amateur musician, budding tap dancer and avid reader.
