Director Statement

As an international student studying in this multicultural country, I have produced features for marginalized groups with my unique cultural lens in the journalism world. I saw that many marginalized groups and cultures received incomplete media coverage in America. I want to provide a voice to those who feel silenced by producing multimedia human-interest stories that combat the negligence and ignorance created by white ethnocentrism.
