About Joel David Bond
A born explorer, Joel David Bond has spent over two decades living and working around the world, from farm work in Italian vineyards to jet-setting as a London-based flight attendant.
His recent work in Iraqi Kurdistan built bridges between some of the region’s most elite students and the locally marginalized refugee community through service-learning.
He holds a Master’s in Education from the University of Nottingham, UK. His essay, “Amazing Grace,” was shortlisted for the 2022 Annie Dillard Award for Creative Nonfiction.
