India, a talented photographer, joined the Youth Media Program in 2017. This month, India's photography was featured in UMASS Lowell's University Gallery. India joined a group of returning students this semester who are piloting MARKED, a digital media outlet for the Youth Media Program. Using social media, the goal of this initiative is to connect youth directly to their peers and to spark conversations about social issues having an impact on their generation. India just completed MARKED's second piece, which explores racism in the Hispanic community.

"My goals for the future are to go to college for mechanical engineering or early childhood development. My experience in the Youth Media Program has been very positive. Not only have I learned skills in media arts but I have also developed relationships with other students.'
