Join us as Abigail Coniah shares her inspiring journey in the film industry, from her start as an extra in "Attack the Block" and starring in commercials, to creating her own films.

Abigail's resilience in the face of personal tragedy and discrimination is truly empowering. Tune in for a candid discussion on embracing challenges, personal growth, and finding strength in storytelling.
