“I hope becoming an Emberlight Ambassador will help me get one step closer to my goal of making and producing films full of representation, whether that’s mental health or LGBTQ+ representation. I think people don’t like what they don’t understand. That’s why I believe having good representation is important, especially in kids’ television and movies. I feel we need to normalize different types of people and different types of couples. It’s something I have become incredibly passionate about.”
