A Mile in My Shoes - Burn Survivors

A Mile in My Shoes is a shoe shop where visitors are invited to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes – literally. Housed in a giant shoebox, this roaming exhibit holds a diverse collection of shoes and audio stories that explore our shared humanity. From a Syrian refugee to a sex worker, a war veteran to a burn survivor, visitors are invited to walk a mile in the shoes of a stranger while listening to their story. Eva worked with production company Same River, collaborating with the American Burns Association and the Phoenix Society for the 2024 instalment, which shared the stories of burn survivors across the US.

Now Samoana - or the 'No Handed Bandit' - works as a motivational speaker, helping burn survivors find hope as they navigate their injuries
