Joelle Grace Dineen's story

Joelle 'Grace' Dineen's chosen field is film.  After she spends one semester taking core academic classes at Suffolk University in Boston, Grace will transfer for the remainder of her studies in film production at Emerson College, her school of choice.

Grace is already gaining hands-on experience: during her senior year in high school she spent a semester working on the crew of Jay Craven’s Nantucket-based film Peter and John.  She also worked at Channel 18 (Nantucket Community Television) and interned with Border Free Productions assisting on segments for its island travel blog.

During college, Grace will seek out other internships and she aspires to move to Los Angeles or New York City to work with a film production company after graduation.
