I had no idea when I started the Center for Documentary Studies program at Duke University that I would meet so many amazing people.
They are my community. They keep me grounded, motivated, and accountable for my ongoing work. I can remember where I was standing when Rebecca told me that the Final 48 Project will not work without injecting myself in the story.
She was right.
That was exactly what I needed to hear. The mentors, instructors, cohorts, and support system is something I have never experienced before. They are the reason why I keep plugging away at this project, and future projects.
I’m #SteeleThankful for my community at CDS at Duke, they embraced my creative, and often times quirky personality.
What are you #SteeleThankful for?
P.S. Yes, that’s Flat Stanley I am holding. He was along for the ride that week.
