"When we view artistic expression as an outlet for social change, it reforms the scope of entertainment and  changes the way we see the world."

As the country continues to be plagued with injustice, sometimes an individual's ability to succeed in their endeavors rest entirely upon outdated systems out of their control. In the entertainment and fashion industry specifically, there is a lack of opportunity for creative and talented people from diverse backgrounds to pursue their aspirations. For this reason, I advocate for an outlet for entertainment that is built on true representation. I am passionate about building a new entertainment industry sector that looks into the community for it's content. Working class people, the elderly, and underprivileged children should not be bound by their identities, but rather given a fair chance to reach their full potential. When we view artistic expression as an outlet for social change, it reforms the scope of entertainment and  changes the way we see the world.
