“I really enjoyed myself when I was working on the Peralta Hacienda Project. The Peralta Hacienda Project was the first project that I directed and edited all by myself. It taught me how people from different backgrounds maintained their own traditional culture at home; It developed my skills on both film making and communication. It also gave me an opportunity to interact with my parents, and reflected what I had learned in the previous year.” – Stephy Liang
