More on the Winner:
A bit about me: I am an ecology and math student in my last year of my bachelor's degree. I love to explore the natural world and learn as much about the local natural history as possible. My hobbies include bird watching, insect and plant photography, embroidery, and creating educational videos. My dream is to spend a year travelling and volunteering abroad with wildlife, and I hope to visit Australia, Ecuador, and Belize next. My end goal is to become a university professor. My current plan is to take a year off of school before starting my Master's degree, so I'm hoping world travel will be possible in 2021!

More on the Winner:
I started playing around with editors at a very young age. I remember getting to know OpenShot, kdenlive, Pitivi, and finally got Final cut pro. It was interesting getting to know Movavi as well. In a lot of ways, I’d say that my love for video editing is what got me to step outside of my comfort zone. That and my cockatoo, sunshine. I have a lovebird and an Indian ringneck as well, they are a huge part of my life and have given me so much happiness. When I do move to Thunder Bay this fall I decided to take my cockatoo as we are very bonded and I cannot imagine my life without her there. I knew I would be taking on a huge responsibility by adopting her, but that is why I did it. To have something, a reason, to keep going. Just knowing that these little birds depend on you and need you there and have such a strong bond to you, this is the kind of reassurance that helped me get through some really hard times. Aside from that, I really enjoy going on adventures and exploring new places. I love to camp and hike, and I’m very well known to disappear for a day to go up north. Seeing all of these places that are so beautiful and natural also helped me to realize there is a whole world out there and everything I’ve ever known is just a small part of whats out there. Moving from southern Ontario to Thunder Bay will be a huge jump for sure, but theres no place I’d feel more at home! I am really excited to make my move and to start school at confederation college!
Winner of the 2018 Movavi Scholarship Program
Name: Ruby Bryan
School: University of South Alabama
More on the Winner:
I'm an Honors Sophomore at the University of South Alabama (USA). I'm majoring in Music, minoring in Film Production, and privately studying Scenic Design under a member of the Drama department faculty here. In addition to taking classes, I teach violin lessons and work as a technical assistant for both the Department of Music and a local audio/video production company. During my free time, I love to read, take photos, play soccer, and do all kinds of crafts. Creating videos has long been something I enjoy. My first memories of it were in elementary school, riding around on my bike with a tiny, red digital camera. Since then, I’ve found myself constantly filming the things around me. Over the years it’s become almost instinct. Now, I get to professionally film events, as well as work with a crew of other film students making movies together. Seeing how much my work has improved is exciting, and I look forward to making it even better.
