Preston Public Interest Career Fund Recipient
“I learned to be flexible with my goals – especially once I was able to see the incredible amount of work RMM does with very few staff.”
My main task of the summer was being an ally to YAG while they worked with filmmaker U Roberto Romano on a documentary film entitled “The DREAMers Among Us” about the New York State DREAM Act. I was the only transportation, coordinator and assistant of the project, and I was constantly juggling different roles. I didn’t have any prior experience with film, but knowing that my superiors trusted me enough to head the project was an empowering experience. Throughout the whole summer I was treated as an RMM employee and not a temporary figure, which I really appreciated.
