Director Statement

Throughout the world, people are going through unthinkable things. Some have found ways to live on or survive the worst life has thrown while others didn't make it through.
Some people in this world have this need growing inside of them to tell their stories. Someday, I see myself working on projects that cut across the globe and to make this happen, my team and I took it upon ourselves to start from our very immediate environment. So, we began with the stories that would potentially heal and give hope. And now I find myself digging deeper into stories that are true and helpful. This was a real challenge and I hope an audience finds it satisfying as this is very important to me.
