Writer Statement

I personally want to be a part of this project in order to give women veterans a powerful voice. There have been characters portrayed in the media before however the woman veteran is rarely seen as the strong beautiful warrior that she is in the Service. She endures so much in and out of the service. I want her to shine on the big screen and encourage more women veterans to carry on.
