Program Title: Brandon Nguyen: An Olympic Hopeful
Producer(s): Paolo Garcia, Joshua John Esguerra, Katie Nguyen
School: Franklin High School
School District: Elk Grove USD
Program Idea: As a peer hearing about Brandon’s dedication to gymnastics, I wanted to learn more about his experience with competing at a high level. I personally already knew about some of Brandon’s successes as a gymnast, but I felt that an interview with him, his teammate, and his coach, combined with b-roll of his training would allow other students at my school to connect with Brandon and recognize his talent.
Message: Brandon Nguyen’s inspirational dedication to gymnastics demonstrates that with passion and hard work, people can fulfill their goals and achieve success.
