Amy Marks' Film - Youth Week 2017
1m

Amy Marks, 20, opens up about living as a young person with a disability. She hopes to offer authentic representation, and stop people from jumping to the conclusion that life with a disability is either extremely tragic or inherently inspirational. In celebration of National Youth Week, SBS teamed up with the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) and Department of Social Services (DSS) to give young people the chance to share their story on national television. 15- to 24-year olds across the country were invited to submit a video entry about their unique identity. After several rounds of judging, five winners were chosen to attend a week-long filmmaking and storytelling workshop in Melbourne with FYA. At the end of the workshop, each winner produced a short film about their story.
