A film by Vanessa Chavarriaga

The United States has become a land of many cultures. We have become a mesh of beautiful peoples and yet we sometimes forget to celebrate our differences. Instead, we choose to act the same, dress the same and sometimes even eat the same. Inside every niche, every industry, the same conversations, same clothing and same food seem to be endless. In this short film, POW Athlete Alliance member, Vanessa Chavarriaga, explores celebrating what sets you apart, to find success in small moments of joy and to honor your culture. The film showcases how she brings her culture into everything she does by telling her personal story of immigration, activism, science and love for outdoor sports.
