"As a filmmaker, I am profoundly curious and compelled by where the personal and political meet. I am interested in big changes and how we can all not only flourish in those changes and challenges, but grow as human beings. I am drawn to the seemingly impossible idea – by doing something that everyone says is too hard. I like to film the people who say "I can do it!" — who stand in the face of those big challenges and obstacles and grow bigger. I am inspired by people who act and strive, without any guarantee of success. And not because they are superheroes. And not because they always succeed, because sometimes they don't. It's the striving, it's the vision. The vision of bringing children of the world a street where they can see themselves. The vision of making a family and an identity out of this multi-cultural world. The vision of creating a group that "empowers young girls of color to step into their collective power, brilliance and leadership to make the world a more radical place.” This is a womxn--empowerment story at its core; as an intersectional feminist and a filmmaker, it is my mission to create and amplify spaces for women and girls' voices. The Radical Monarchs give me hope for the future, and with this film I can share that hope."
