Emily Rivas, Videographer
In grade five, Emily Rivas, 10, began making YouTube videos, which helped developed her interest in attending the Los Angeles Film School to become a director. “When I was little I looked up to a lot of directors, like Tim Burton,” Rivas said. “I really want to be a director, just [for] the fact that I can be incharge.”

I don’t like to follow the norm; instead, I like to think outside the box.”
