"What struck me most when I first experienced Rocket21 was that they want kids to explore as many possibilities as they can, to discover their deepest passions," said Katie Roletto. "The minute I saw the platform, I knew I just had to make a video."

The video was produced by Katie Roletto, a California videographer who also serves as a PRO on Rocket21. In her role as a Rocket21 PRO, Ms. Roletto talks with students about her love for telling stories through media, shares techniques she used in the Rocket21 project, and inspires them to pursue their passions.
“Making videos and telling stories really helped me to overcome a challenge,” said producer Katie Roletto. “When I was young, I was deathly shy. I struggled with how to communicate what I was thinking or feeling. For me, video offered a relief, and to this day (even though I overcame my shyness) video’s the place where I feel most comfortable conveying a specific idea.” Roletto added, “What struck me most when I first experienced Rocket21 is the idea that they want kids to explore as many possibilities as they can, to discover their deepest passions. As soon as I saw the platform, I knew I just had to make a video.”
“Kids are really interested in content creation across all media,” said Jodell Seagrave, Rocket21 President and COO. “We were delighted to engage Katie as a PRO on our platform – and when she shared her idea for the video – we loved it. We think she captured the spirit of Rocket21 beautifully, and we know that our members will be inspired by her story and excited to learn all about her techniques.”
