Episode 11. Interview with Sophie Rousmaniere

Interviewing Sophie Rousmaniere reminded me that we all could probably be doing a little more to help the world be a better place. Sophie lives to create positive change and to fight for social justice. Her films are only one small piece of the work she creates to educate and speak about issues plaguing global society. In this interview we learn about the experiences she and husband Jay Minton have had through various film projects, travel, fundraising and even their life on the road with punk rock band The Elected Officials. If you want to get inspired to be the change you wish to see, then listen in to this episode and hear how Sophie Rousmaniere keeps the inspiration fueled in every aspect of her life.
