About this submission

D'Juliana Calzada and I chose to tell this story because it is personal to her experiences with college. We felt that there weren't many stories that told how stresses of college can affect you. It was largely for her, to express those exact emotions she felt, almost in a therapeutic way. We hope that when others see this film, if they are in a similar situation they will find comfort in the character Ember; that it will take self care, time and healing, but things will improve, and there will always be a little flame blazing inside you.
