PERSONAL GROWTH AND GIVING BACK HAS BEEN A BIG FOCUS FOR MYSELF AS AN ARTIST AND A HUMAN THIS YEAR.
We Did It!
I have been working closely with Campaign One At A Time and excited to share that AJ, the awesome child I have been working with, is the latest child that One At A Time will be supporting! The team put together this video with the goal of raising $9,000 to help build a Tree House in his backyard. This is a childhood dream of his and will give him the opportunity to get away and study, after missing so much school this year. PLUS - every 10 year old needs a place to get away and dream!
We are selling personalized bracelets (which are genuinely nice!) for a small donation of $15. We have already raised 30% of the target in just a few days and would like ask if you could help AJ and his family!
Please at least share this post and help spread the word!

Soooo happy & proud, and would like to thank everyone who supported this great cause!
We managed to raise the $9,000 goal in just two weeks and have already started designing and planning the treehouse, as well as the other wishes asked for by the family!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
As part of New York Film Academy’s dedication to give back to the community, NYFA LA has been running a filmmaking program in partnership with the British Academy of Film and Television Los Angeles (BAFTA LA) for youth in need.
The young aspiring filmmaking students participate in a 9-week film intensive curriculum, created by NYFA Community Outreach, that focuses on telling their stories and finding their voice. New York FIlm Academy faculty work with the Washington Prep High School students who learn how to make their own films from start to finish over the course of a nine weekend program.
I was incredibly grateful to have been able to help tomorrow's filmmakers in finding their voice and turning to the arts for support and guidance. I worked with an incredibly talented student called Daizia who felt the need to express her concern with people over-using social media and the negative effects it has.
