I was born and raised in the Brownsville, Brooklyn projects. My life has not been easy, but I am trying to raise myself up and get out of the system.
My Film: BROKEN
“One in five residents of NYC lives below the poverty line.”Mahogany - Reel Lives
One of five residents of New York City is living below the poverty line. Many of these people live in public housing where they are subjected to poor living standards, gang violence, drugs, abuse and much more. The children that grow up here are also exposed to all of this. This film explores how a child of the projects is trying to reconcile her past so she can move forward with her future.
