About this submission
As a member of the martial arts and filmmaking communities, I am part of a 20% minority of women participants. "Lions' Den" reflects the feeling of often times being the only female in both of these places. I sometimes feel like I am surrounded by lions. I can feel lost, intimidated, frustrated, and out of place. But nothing in the world feels as good as being on set or in the gym. It is within these communities that I have made unlikely friendships, challenged myself with the help of others, and proven that I can achieve anything I wish.
