"Perspective is everything."

Hometown: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Six-word Memoir: Live, grow, create, find a way.

Why did you choose to get involved in storytelling?

Perspective is everything, depending on who’s side you are telling the story from it can effect people, make them feel a variety of emotions and open their mind to things unthought of….I want to produce that feeling.

What story are you most proud of?

More likely the persuasive videos, like the recruitment video for my school’s entertainment tech program, in the video it really showed how much of a team we are in the studio and in the classroom. it enhances all of the good in digital media.

How can youth media change the world? 

We can be good advocates for our peers and also persuade them to do the right things, and because we are less likely to become extremely harmed by it we can help and make sure the more valnurable are a good distance.

Who is your role model?

My cousin, he is a sgt in the military. He was in active duty when he became an amputee, even after this he didnt let it stop him from still doing what he loves even though its harder for him he still puts his all in.
