Story:   Strive is a story about an underprivileged girl with a dream of obtaining a great education, and a better life. Kalani is a teenager living in Harlem with her older brother Jacob, and her younger sister, Bebe, while her mother struggles to make ends meet.  As Kalani’s siblings get caught up in a myriad of hardships, Kalani teeters on the brink of ruin as she struggles to keep both her family and her dream intact. Strive reminds us that hard work, optimism, and perseverance, in the face of overwhelming adversity, is the essence of what it is to be an American.
