Hamlin Participates In The Film: “If I Were The President”

On April 5, filmmaker Anna Sergeeva and her team interviewed 18 Hamlin grade 7 students. Each student was asked to share what she would do or change as the President of the United States.

We hear endless opinions about politics from adults, but the voices of our youth are often missing.

If I Were The President is a nation-wide art project that asks youth under 18 years old what they would change if they were the President of the United States. 

In December 2018, all these messages will be delivered to the White House in hopes of making a strong, poetic statement about a future worth fighting for together.

The Hamlin School was Ms. Sergeeva’s first stop in a journey that will take her all around the United States interviewing young people from: Colorado, Louisiana, Ohio, Tennessee, and New York. The completed short film will be shown in San Francisco this June.
