Rooting for Everybody Black

 In Youth


When I joined The EDGE program, I felt adopted into a whole new community of volunteers who became mentors, Debutantes who became my sisters, and Beaux who became my brothers. I learned numerous lessons that will forever be engraved in me. I gained a new family. While participating in the program I was studying Television and Film at Centennial College. I felt it hard to juggle school and an extra curricular activity. Which is quite easy compared to what I do today? A year after my participation I gave back to The EDGE for all they’ve done for me by creating the opening video you watched today. Today, I work in the film and TV industry as a Production Assistant. The shows I’ve worked on so far are The Umbrella Academy, Star Trek Discovery, Dare Me, and I am currently working on Anne With an E season 3 just to name a few. In an industry that is still working on diversity, I love knowing that the there’s a group of people who look like me, understand me, and are routing for me, you and all people all of color. #ImRootingForEverybodyBlack– Issa Rae 2017 Emmy’s. 2013 Debutant Danisha Brand.
