“My favorite part of Sisters Action Media was when we got our cameras and began to film. Also another one of my favorite parts  [was] meeting the other girls in the program. The most important thing I learned in SAM  is looking at media in a different way and always looking to see what the message is behind that picture, music video, etc. This program has affected me as a media maker, consumer, and human being  by making me feel that I have a greater responsibility and that I have a voice. Also I can change things through my filmmaking.  I enjoyed being a part of this program and I hope that  it goes on!!”
