Se nos dijo “Los jovenes en Quito puede ser tímido en grandes grupos como este, así que no esperes a hablar.” Bueno, algo debe haber cambiado ese día!

Ellos saben que es a ellos a tomar medidas para proteger y conservar los parajes naturales únicos de Ecuador y de las especies y nos dio las gracias por proporcionar inspiración.

Paige Moreland and Kristen Moreland, two of six teenagers featured in the documentary film PLAY AGAIN, were invited to represent the film at the Pan African American Film Festival in Los Angeles. Before heading to L.A., Paige said, “I feel so blessed to be able to share our message with a predominantly black audience.
