Our Under Twelve Student Jurors
Breccan Beck Davis
I am eleven years old, currently in the sixth grade. One thing that I like to do is to decorate rooms and making them have a newer look, not to long ago I redecorated my mothers room. Something else I like to do is draw and I like to sketch. The reason I decided I wanted to become a member of the film class is because one day I want to become a Youtuber. I believe that if I am in this class I would feel more comfortable and more confident in front of the camera when I become a Youtuber. Secondly I think that after the class is over I will know what materials I need to create a Youtube video. For that reason I am currently in this class, and why I am doing my best.
