Why is it important to value our parents? || Trisha Allison Obillo

For my essential question, I decided to do it on the importance of valuing our parents and created a video. Typically, I would add a bunch of effects to make my video unique but for this project I decided to stay simple because I wanted to get my point across without any distractions. Enjoy!
