“I was interested in combining art and work. I wanted to keep art as a part of my life. Besides AFH, I don’t know any other place that does that for teenagers.”

Jason Talbot, AFH Co-founder, was also Amy’s Video Mentor while she was at AFH.
Amy worked as an Assistant Video Mentor and a recruiting coordinator after graduating from AFH.

“I wish I could have told myself about people at AFH sooner. I wish I could have gone to my 10-year-old self and said, ‘You’re going to find a crew.”
