Jada Shampine, 2017 Thrill of Victory & People’s Choice Winner

“My experience in the DITR Leadership and Film boot camp was very beneficial for me. The program taught me how to be more self-confident and self-aware. The program also taught me and the girls how to make a film which was great! I was able to meet a lot of amazing people every week, like producers, writers, editors, photographers, singers, dancers and actresses. The Diamond in the Raw foundation has opened up avenues for me and opens doors for other girls that would like to be in the film industry. I truly recommend young ladies to become a Diamond in the Raw, this program is the best and they show everyone so much love, support, and encouragement, and really build on our self-esteem. Being a Diamond in the RAW is a great experience for me, and I would definitely do it all over again.”
