I have come to admire each person I have interviewed and I have increased my desire to do more to help.

My Passions:
Television, volunteer opportunities with women in third world countries

My Challenges:
A lack of knowledge on some important social problems

My Vision for the Future:
I want to help empower women

My Areas of Expertise:
Television production

I hope it is all going well.
