I made this short film for my HUMA247 unit. Peter Howard suggested I make a documentary about my journey through the Clemente program into university. It quickly became apparent that I would have to tell my back story if the film was going to work. Although it shows parts of my life that are certainly not good, I hope that it may help someone who watches it to realise that they are not alone in their struggles. We all stumble at some point in our lives and if we are fortunate enough to have wonderful people like the ones I encountered during my toughest moments, we can not only survive, but we can flourish.

I will be eternally grateful to the people of Clemente for helping me realise a dream that, at one point, I was certain I would never fulfil.
