“I’m excited to be involved again with the Youth Media Academy as an instructor because I believe that young people have a unique perspective on the events surrounding their lives and our society that is worthy of expression. At YMA, I hope to take away a renewed sense of filmmaking in our world through the eyes of youth in this country.”
