I’m the 2019 winner of the Academy Gold Fellowship for Women, launched by the Academy Women’s Initiative to uplift emerging female filmmakers through grants, mentorship, and access to the Academy’s Network.
I was also part of of the inaugural class of the Academy Gold Program in 2017. I was nominated through my internship at HBO and selected by the Academy as one of 70 students to participate in panels, attend exclusive Academy screenings and talkbacks, and career building.
A web series written, directed and featuring me. The show follows two young women who become unlikely friends when they volunteer together at a Women's Health Clinic! We worked with a cast and crew that was 60% women and 50% women of color. To learn more about the project, check out our website.
As an intern at Encompass at the Western Justice Center, I produced a series of videos that break down social justice terminology into simple, visual metaphors. These are my two favorites, but if you want to see more head over to the WJC's website!
Two short films I wrote that were produced in conjunction with students from the USC School of Cinematic Arts!
