Hi my name is Dia and I am in seventh grade here at Santa Barbara Middle School. I'm a Reporter in "Dreamers Who DO".
In my spare time I love to climb, choreograph, and do gymnastics. I chose to do SBMS’s Teen Press because I thought it was a great way to get to know some well known, amazing, and inspiring people. A dream I have for the Teen Press is to interview the President. I know it is a big dream, but with the Teen Press capability I know we could do it!
Three of the most creative people I know are Eric Lehman, Neal Rabin, and Tim Barker. These people are all creative in different ways. Eric is creative in the way he films and makes art. Neal is creative by the way he writes and paints pages with his words. Tim is creative because everything he teaches is fun and creative, and lets kids explore themselves and what we are capable of, instead of exploring books. Three films in the Film Festival I am looking forward to seeing is; Sassy Pants, Darling Companion, and I’m Yours.
My dream is to be an actress in movies. I am working to make my dream come true by trying to get an agent, getting head shots, and talking to my mentor. My inspiration for my dream is my love for acting and theater and being on stage. I very excited about the Film Festival and can’t wait!
