Aloha! My name is Jayden Kepo’o-Caspino, I Am a Junior of Waianae High School currently involved in a journalism and film producing program called Searider Productions. Searider Productions has opened up so many opportunities for me as a young adult. Whether it’s creating News stories to inform the Wai’anae Community and nation or by something as simple as communicating with diverse individuals to better my self esteem. This program has given me a clear vision as to what I want to accomplish and pursue in the future. My current role for Searider Productions is Sports Lead Highlights. I’ve been participating in Searider Productions for over 2 years and started touching up on creative media since elementary. Video production or working with cameras is what I live for. So attending the Student Television Network in Nashville Tennessee will be the greatest opportunity to fulfill my dream as a professional videographer. STN is a national film and journalism competition that happens all around the world, where young adults are challenged to put their best skills to the test. This will be my fourth time attending STN, and I feel attending in such a crucial and exciting competition will help me grow as an individual. I will push the knowledge I acquired through this program beyond the limits, practice to enhance, and focus on putting in my all to attend in this years trip. Representing Hawai’i shows people what the real meaning of being a Searider is. However, this trip costs $2,000, and my family is still figuring out ways to get the costs covered. I would be truly grateful for any financial support to make my dreams come true. Mahalo!
