Jade is a good example of the young people Ida wanted to assist—Jade wrote in her scholarship application;
“I dream of making movies. To do so for a living would give me an opportunity to change people’s lives. My passion for storytelling cannot be silenced and I know I want to do this for the rest of my life. This fall, I will be going to the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in film-making”.
Congratulations Jade and best of luck in your pursuit of your dreams!
