Making Your Mark:(Amber)

17 Feb

Name:
Amber J. Adams

What project, goal, or idea are you working on?
Currently, Amber is co-producing a documentary about the shift in Gen Y’s thinking towards careers, entrepreneurship, and social conventions. “It’s exciting to be able to help my Generation tell our story!”

How long have you been working toward this?
Amber has been working toward creating an independent media company for the last 3 years.

Your passion, dreams, and aspirations
Amber has a passion for encouraging people to go after their dreams. She personally dreams of creating several ventures that help people see beyond the limiting stories that they create for their life. She also aspires to produce media projects that push boundaries and break stereotypes and conventions.  

What do you hope to accomplish?
She hopes to create a film that celebrates and explores the unique challenges Gen Y is facing today. Among her other ventures, she hopes to inspire young people to think about their careers, and their life in terms of connecting what they do, to who they really are.

What do you hope will be your legacy?
Amber hopes to be known as someone who was not afraid to tell people, “it’s perfectly okay to be exactly who you are.”

Who is a black figure (past or present) that inspires you?
“I love Nikki Giovanni. I got a chance to meet her, and hear her speak, and it was awesome! I’m also very inspired by my grandmothers.”

Words of encouragement to others…
“Always be true to the beauty that is you.”

Amber and I went to college together, and she was so kind to lend herself to this project for me. I have no doubt that she will accomplish all of the things she has on her heart to do.

Writers shall inherit the earth…..
