Leadership Council

Nicole Zakheim

I’m a senior at Francis Parker and through the curriculum at my school I receive the opportunity to pursue the community issues that I care about and am passionate about. When I came across the Chain Of Change booth at my schools community connections fair, I was beyond excited. I love making short films and I believe that film is one of most powerful mediums in which a message can be conveyed, so this project would be a great opportunity for me. My goals are to educate myself and my community on issues that affect us and in contrast, issues that are swept under the rug and forgotten about.  What it comes down to though, is that we can all relate to each other in some way or another, and Chain of Change is allowing me the chance to connect all of Chicago’s youth through film.
