I'm a Movie Star!
Not only have I been in print, now I'm in a movie! I'm not expecting an Oscar for my short performance, but part of my interview is included in the prize-winning documentary, "Building a Better Future". And I only sound a little like a dork. The film was created by Amy Schleicher, a 17 year old junior at San Ramon High School. She won 2nd place at the First Annual Bay Area Social Issues Documentary Film Contest (SI DocFest) for it, and shared the prize money with her high school and Habitat for Humanity East Bay. It covers the great need for decent, affordable housing, has interviews with some staff and volunteers, and highlights Sonnie Dae's story. Sonnie is the mom of the partner family for the Thrivent Builds-sponsored house, and a pretty amazing person. You can read more about Amy and view the video here.
