How do you survive when rejection is a constant? How do you compete? How will you be remembered? Where isn’t there a voice? Do you know what a voice actor is? Do you have a voice? Can anybody hear us? Is there anybody out there?

This winning team knew the day would come when change required a new way of thinking. It is time to reveal what’s behind the mask and share storytelling with the world. A remedy that heals.

We are all a collective voice and it’s time to celebrate
