What’s something you care deeply about and hope to transform? 

When people grow up without seeing themselves in television or reading themselves in books, they grow up without knowing that the world belongs to them as much as it belongs to anyone. Through journalism, writing, and filmmaking, I hope to give voices to those who are struggling to be heard. We can build a stronger sense of empathy, compassion, and connection through the creation and sharing of stories, perspectives, and ideas. I want to change the narratives of the world so that they better reflect the diversity of the people in it.
