The Black Women’s Film Network of Atlanta Scholarship has benefitted me in many ways. Not only has it increased my financial aid and helped me to focus more on academics, but it has also enabled me as a young black woman to help reach my goals. Seeing many of the successful black women that are a part of this network has reinforced the fact that anything is possible and that my dreams can be achieved. ~ Jessica Bass
