About this submission

Though I'm 19 years old, half-way through my major at NYU Tisch, I'm proud to teach high school students at a non-profit in Baltimore City, Wide Angle Youth Media. It’s hard to find any text that represents what students are doing better than Amanda Gorman’s “The Hill We Climb”. Students have been working hard on Wide Angle’s Prom: A Dance Through the Decades. First delving through history to find key figures not always mentioned in history, students created virtual backgrounds that celebrate these moments artistically. Inspired by this work, we created and narrated a piece using student-filmed and stock footage.
