Director BIO: Merivelle Hannah (WHEN I MET MIA)

Merivelle is currently applying to film schools this fall, 2021. Her first passion was for editing, which started when she was nine years old. After shooting a short film for her Film & Media midterm during her junior year, she realized she also had an interest in directing.
