"I became involved because the majority of commercial television
programs affect the mind and conscience of indigenous teenagers
and children of my community. This prompted me to train in the
production of videos that show the culture and wisdom of the older
people in my community, in order to help the youth form and maintain
healthy and constructive mentalities."
