Hey my beautiful friends and family, I am currently working on my new documentary about Women in Spoken Word and finishing up the editing on my project about an amazing non-profit from Brazil that should be done in October.
Also the first documentary I worked on is going to be showing in some film festivals coming up so come out and support! (yeah this has been my heart and soul and also one of the main reasons I have been pretty underground...you know following dreams, taking back the media and tell the stories that need to be told... the only true path to happiness, doing what you love... I am testing out that theory while I max out the credit card)
Thanks always for all your love and support. Please pass this on to anyone who may be interested.
