She is deeply passionate about the arts as a social justice platform and creating work which shows a wide array of representation of various types of people who are often left out by mainstream cinema and media. Some of her most notable projects are "Dear Men," "Tell Them," "Prisms (a series of four short films)" and "Black America" which won best youth documentary at the Newark International Film Festival in 2017. In her spare time, she is most likely writing more stories for various mediums - not just cinema. She does a great deal of planning ahead for her future and is always looking for new opportunities to experience.
