Prosperity Ready Video Shoot
We are in the process of shooting a video that will highlight stories of successful immigrants and the traits that they bring to their workplace. Camila and Robert Jacobs, professional videographer, prepare for our first shoot here! Camila came to the U.S. when she was seven years old from Uruguay and did not speak English.
