ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

Reigning from the city of brotherly love, Princess Garrett is a recent graduate with degrees in Communication and Global Interdisciplinary Studies from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Film and television has always been something that Princess has been passionate about, but the representation of women in the media is one that fascinates her the most. Through experiences like making this documentary in Ghana, Princess hopes she can learn how to change the misconceptions and stereotypes that exist within society through film. As the director of the film, Princess hopes to use her abilities and experiences to help make this film as impactful and amazing as possible.
