In my thirties, producing documentaries was all about looking at the trauma around me, I was still figuring myself out, and I was still trying to figure out what was happening around me and needing answers for that. In my forties, something happened to me where I was like I’m exhausted in telling these stories; I need to shift. The shift was already happening with me that I was becoming comfortable with myself, building more confidence, had more now I’m developing stories that are uplifting, positive, strong, truthful, deep, connected. For me, that’s what I needed.
