I never forget that my staff is talented and creative, and yet sometimes I am caught off guard with the great stuff they work on outside of my office! My multimedia producer Amanda Harryman has directed a wonderful documentary- and I’m not the only one who thinks so. The film has already won three awards, but I am writing here to try and help her with another!
Congratulations to Amanda and her team for creating a very inspiring film. She met the subject of the film because he too used to work for me, although now he is on to bigger and better things- he has just started graduate school studies at Seattle Pacific University. Apparently lunch conversations when I am traveling garner interesting subjects! I had no knowledge of Maikaru’s (pronounced My-ka-rue) past with human trafficking. He is an extraordinary young man, and I know he will go on to do great things. Visit The Audience Awards to view the movie (7 minutes) and vote for the film.
