Yo! My name is Ameenah Nefertiti Muhammad and I am 18 years old. I was born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago but I still like to refer to myself as a Chicagoan I am the youngest of six children and I have 8 nieces\nephews and one great nephew who was born 3 short weeks ago. I have been involved with YouthLab for the last year and it has opened countless doors for me. After becoming involved with YouthLab I have had the opportunity to start working on documentaries with other organizations. In the last year I have helped with the development of films from IMAN and AYWA ( Alliance of Young Women Activists). This fall I will entering the University of Illinois at Chicago with a major in biological science. After two to three years of work I will then move to Cuba to attend Medical school at the Latin American School of Medicine in Havana. I made this choice because Cuba produces the largest amount of doctors worldwide and the doctors are trained to practice medicine to truly help people and not just for the money. My experiance with filmmaking will help me document my journey through life because I have plans to do so much.
