A small-town country girl from Alto, Texas, Shanelle Gaddis’ passion is writing poetry. Recently, Shanelle published a book entitled, There is Always a Way Out. She desires to produce films that impact the lives of people, especially children, who have been hurt through all types of abuse. Shanelle envisions film as an avenue of inspiration to those individuals on the brink of despair.
“I am elated and I know I will gain a lot from this program. This is an opportunity that I have longed for and I believe in fighting for what I want because what I want will not fight for me.”
