This is only a teaser of the short documentary that I edited.


“This is the story of four young ladies from McClymonds High School Lady Warriors Championship team of 2013, for them basketball is a breath of fresh air; ¬†an escape, a safe haven. It gives them a chance to avoid the trappings of the urban environment that await so many young women.

These girls have no plans on giving in or giving up on themselves or life. They won the Oakland O.A.L championship of 2013, but the true triumph is what they accomplished off the court. Basketball takes them and will take them to a whole different world.

The goal of this project is to let the world see a beautiful rose as it grows from the concrete.”
