It wasn’t an easy path for Susanna Spiccia, Founder and Executive Director of the nonprofit re:imagine/ATL to start an organization for teens to do videos/films on social good themes. But as they say, no journey is worth it without its share of obstacles. “On a mission trip to Poland at age 17, I had a very clear, defining moment where I knew I’m going to be working with kids for the rest of my life – I didn’t know how but I knew that’s what was going to happen.” While a college student at Georgia College & State University (Milledgeville, GA), Spiccia knocked on Section 8 housing doors to “help take care of their kids” – basically she started a daycare facility with college students as caretakers. As time went on, Spiccia “embarrassingly admits that I was more feeling sorry for the kids than empowering them.” So when she started re:imagine/ATL she was very clear about the purpose, “Bringing kids from all backgrounds, socio-economic status and culture together to find a commonalty through storytelling.” One of re:imagine/ATL’s program is to partner with metro Atlanta’s 54 film programs and connecting with other nonprofits that needs video content. Other programs include a summer camp, No Comment and extending the program internationally. It’s a must listen when Spiccia talks about Sierra Leone during the Ebola crisis and teens connecting through video projects.
