A Lot Like You

A Film by Eliaichi Kimaro

Tana-Isabela ~ 8th grade reviews ALLY

Dear Eli,

Thank you so much for sharing your unique story with my classmates and me.

I visited Tanzania last summer on a volunteer trip, and I was amazed by the country and its people. Our group leader and many of her friends were Chagga. Like you, they were brave enough to share their stories, heritage, and culture with complete strangers.

Your film made me think deeper about the lifestyles of here and places like Tanzania.  It made me wonder what would happen if I did a project similar to yours to find out more about what makes me, me. All the people included in A Lot Like You went through challenges and adversity that are unimaginable for someone like me.

Your film also evoked emotions that even though I haven’t been through the same experiences as you, I could really feel. Throughout the film, I really appreciated how honest you were; that must’ve taken a lot of courage.

Asante sana,
