We decided to enter a video about poverty because poverty is one of the world’s biggest problems. We learned that people in poverty affect their families and many others by joining gangs. It was sort of hard because the research was not what we were used to. Multiple steps must be taken to stop poverty,and there were so many ideas and ways to accomplish that, but we only had two minutes to fill. It was also challenging because one of us was inexperienced in video production and editing while the other had been doing this for a year. However it was very fun in that we know that we were helping stop poverty. We now know how severe poverty is, and several great ways to help stop it. See our video submission here.
