That is who I am, no trailer, no eyes, and no blankness. I truly know who I am and u know me because you saw me. You saw through me since day 1 and that is what made me open up. Thank you. Thank u. Thank u. You are an incredible beautiful person who has touched and changed our lives; each and every one of us. You are an amazing walking positive passionate and motivating energy. God knows I fought in this workshop, I fought you, and I fought the other 7 beautiful people. I fought whatever possibility this workshop can give me. But you Muriel made me stay and I am so thankful for that. It is a great one-of-a-kind enlightening journey; More than a workshop. My friends in NYC got so jealous when I told them in detail about this experience. They saw the light in my eyes. Yes, my blank eyes & saw Cine-Jam’s beauty shining through them. Change starts with just one person. You are going to change the world Muriel. I promise you that you are.
