What are you passionate about?

I am most passionate about film, post-production/editing, and music because they tell stories and I love stories.

Who are your biggest inspirations?

My biggest inspirations will always be my parents, followed by my best friends. I am also very inspired by Donald Glover and Casey Neistat.

When and how did you start getting into cinematography and videography?

I became interested in cinematography when I was a senior in high school and fell completely in love with it, especially editing. I knew that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life and I don’t care how long it takes to be known or for people to appreciate my work.

Do you have any future goals you’d like to mention?

Yes! I want to start a clothing line, release my first short film on my own and keep creating!

It’s amazing to see us young people taking steps and actions to pursue and live off what we love. Make sure to check out Afzan’s social medias and YouTube platforms.
