"It would be an honour and a fantastic opportunity to be a part of the Youth Advisory Board at such a respectable festival such as Locarno Film Festival. Each year I follow the program very closely, which is always a tremendous source of inspiration for me, resulting in many new films I want to discover… To be able to share ideas on how the future of the festival will be shaped would be an amazing and unique opportunity."
