“I grew up in the Newark public school system. I can remember police officers coming to our school and talking to us, firefighters and things like that, but we never had actual scientists come to our school and kind of get us interested in the science field. That might correlate to the fact why there’s not too many people that come from urban areas that go into science fields and become scientists.”

“I felt like there was a responsibility in making this film, as a whole, to get climate change out there for people to see. It definitely gives me a lot of ownership towards my films and the science and it forces me to actually know and learn the science since I have to work with it.”

Asst. Producer, Antarctic Edge: 70° South

“I never saw myself as someone who’d be so concerned about science without being an actual scientist, but now I feel kind of like it’s my duty to always stay connected with these type of things.”

“I’m definitely considering being a scientific filmmaker. It bridges my natural curiosity for scientific information, but also my love of storytelling and art.”

“It’s good to see women in leadership positions, especially in science. You can’t tell somebody’s story without knowing their story. You have to put yourself in their shoes.”
