Sabrina’s inspiration as a storyteller is to tell stories her little brother would’ve loved. She lost her young brother when he was 17, and through her grief and passion for storytelling has cultivated her strong purpose. To share stories for the young Native American generations to feel seen and accurately represented in TV/Film. It’s her core drive to tell stories that reflect her love of her culture and an inspiration to show younger generations that they’re loved and can dream to be whoever they want to be in this world.
