In 2014, I started volunteering as a guest speaker at BAYCAT, a San Francisco nonprofit that offers free media education to low-income students in an effort to close the Digital Divide. I mentored first-time directors Alex Sorto and Hugo Castillo throughout their process of making the video. The song, Hard Times, was written, produced, and performed by students of BAYCAT.
