My name is Jasmine Duong and I’m an incoming junior at Hiram Johnson High School. My hobbies consist of studying, reading, watching YouTube videos, hanging with my friends, and filming for fun and when I feel inspired. I’m also a 16 year old without a dream. I have always lived my life being criticized and told what to do. I was planning my whole life and preparing myself to be a nurse because I loved science and medicine and because I had to.
When it came to filming, as cliche as it sounds, it makes me feel alive because I don’t have to focus on myself or the future anymore but a camera and the videos I make. I love making videos for my audience. I want it to make people laugh, but at the same time spread a meaningful message. Although, I lost my confidence as a kid, I still want to keep going and reach the goal of making an amazing film. Filming will always be my passion.
I don’t know what I’m going to film yet, but I know that it gives me a stage whether it’s big or small. My voice can be heard.
