Her project “Benin - the cradle of Voodoo“ has been published by the german publisher Terra Magica in 2011.
 For her actual project “IN/VISIBLE“ on burned women she received a grant by the german foundation VG Bild-Kunst/Stiftung Kulturwerk for the continuation of her project. Furthermore she received several awards and got selected for Descubrimientos at Photo España in Madrid and got shortlisted for the Terry O’Neill Tag Award 2012.
