Justine Teba of Pojoaque Valley High School was a participant in Youth Media Project’s 2010 Summer Intensive. In this reflective piece, Justine shares with us beautiful moments of her childhood and slowly growing out of innocence. Things that were once strange and dark became the friends to help her forget what took the innocence away.
“Family Tree” is a short piece written and produced by Andres Ortiz. He is a junior at Pojoaque Valley High School and created “Family Tree” during Youth Media Project’s Summer Intensive at the Santa Fe Art Institute. His piece is a journey into Ortiz’s unknown family history. Growing up being told by all that his family is Hispanic, Andres finds out how important and fulfilling it is to know the complexities of our family backgrounds and histories.
