My final project, titled Welcome to Leicester: Street Life, brings together the stories of those living in Leicester's most challenged areas. From growing up in Leicestershire myself, I understand it can be easy for areas with mass underfunding and poverty to go unnoticed. I created this documentary to highlight the issue and, more importantly, give a voice to those growing up in the city and let them tell their stories their way.
