Artist Statement on the theme “I Matter Because…”
I wanted to produce a film that shows regardless of age, skin color, or gender, everyone matters. In the occasions that we fail, it’s our actions that determine who we are and not the amount of our failures. I believe no matter how small or insignificant you may believe yourself to be, you matter. You can make a difference that can change the world.
