- 2021 Stowe Story Labs Final Draft Honorable Mention!
So excited to share that my feature screenplay Garamba was selected as the 2021 Stowe Story Labs Final Draft Honorable Mention, which means I get to attend their program later this year!
The screenplay is set in Garamba, a national park in DR Congo that stands at the forefront in the fight to stop elephant poaching. Poaching in all of Africa persists as a crisis as elephants face critical levels of extinction throughout the continent. Hopefully, this story can continue to bring awareness of the situation and the people who work so hard to solve it.
