Young filmmakers show what they want to change

Four young people spent most of last year recording video about their experiences as residents of City Heights and members of Mid-City Community Advocacy Network. The result is a dozen videos that document who they are and some of the Mid-City CAN campaigns they worked on last year.

The young filmmakers are
Miriam Adam, a student at Dehesa Charter High School in Mission Valley
Jose Ayala, who was a senior at Crawford when he started the project and has since graduated
Jobana Castellon, a student at San Diego City College
Phuc Nguyen, a student at Crawford High School

The filmmakers' first videos were about growing up in City Heights.

"It was a great experience," said Adam. "I got to go out in the community and see what I wanted to change."

They each also created at least two more videos about events like Parking Day, Built Environment Education Program San Diego, the Mid-City CAN Youth Council meeting with Sandag to advocate for no-cost student transportation passes and other activities related to the Building Healthy Communities Initiative.

Building Healthy Communities is a 10-year, $1 billion plan of The California Endowment. Communities in 14 sites across California, including City Heights, are taking action to make where they live healthier.
