Stephanie Chu is a San Ramon native and a former Student Recognition Winner, and here she is giving back to the program! Stephanie has since participated in over a hundred video projects, ranging from videography for local organizations (i.e. Wongfu Productions, Chuck Jones Center) to special videos for guests (i.e. President Obama, the Dalai Lama). She has also earned 27 international awards and nominations for films that she directed; though, her trump card is actually in producing and editing. As a side job, she teaches professional filmmaking at universities and manages film projects for her startup team, PaperSketch Media. However, her day job is at YouTube HQ, where she interacts with content creators around the world and helps them optimize their videos on the platform.
