I am a first-generation student, a full-scholarship freshman majoring in film/video and concentrating in photography at the Maryland Institute College of Art. I’m from West Baltimore and I graduated from the historic Frederick Douglass High school. I’m an independent filmmaker, cinematographer, videographer and community public figure. I’ve recently worked for the Baltimore City Public School System where I directed and produced videos, while also hosting 30-minute interviews for its communication department. I’ve produced commentaries and was an interviewer for WYPR radio. I was nominated by the Assistant President of CBS EcoMedia to be the main protagonist and narrator for the film "Hope Baltimore." I aspire to tell personal stories through film about the challenges faced in the urban communities.
Hours before I met my savior, I was at my church, appreciating the last few moments of something holy. But I was also wondering where I would stay that night. I was going into my junior year in High School in Baltimore, and I was homeless.
