Film….. something I was not too familiar with. I have never written, worked with, produced, or directed anything, until now! The Youth Ocean Conservation Summit kicks off with a film festival every year and there’s a competition held among youth to showcase their projects and passions. How can I change the ocean where I live? I live in Tennessee which is a landlocked state so people often think I’m wasting my time. I’m not! The Tennessee river is terribly polluted with microplastic. So I made a film and WON! My very first short film was screened at the film festival and I met so many cool people who work tirelessly to give back to our ocean. Here it is, check it out!
