ABOUT THE “PAY IT FORWARD MEDIA” FACILITATORS:

Stephanie Sullivan Founder/Program Manager

 

Stephanie learned video production as a producer and host at Del Mar TV. It was there she came to love collaborating with nonprofit organizations that were often the subjects of her productions. Inspired to act, she started Pay It Forward Media to immerse disadvantaged youth in broadcast journalism and documentary production while continuing to serve the nonprofit community. In the years that followed she delivered hands-on video production training to youth in STEAM-qualified programs across San Diego County. Stephanie is determined that one day Pay It Forward Media will not only prepare youth for the workforce, but also be a job creator where students can grow into mentors and pay it forward along the way….
