Director Biography - Yosely Ruiz

Born in Houston, Texas from Guatemalan parents. Studied filmmaking along with French, Italian, and Arabic languages at the University of Houston. I have created mostly short films but learn from every experience. Although I enjoy telling stories visually, I love bringing characters to life as an actress. I was blessed with the Gates Millennium Scholarship which gave me the opportunity to attend college. My goal is to work on and make different films in different languages with meaningful messages.
