Each storyteller is given a paragraph on what the team knows about their subject. Here is what was given to Courtney.

Erika Fucaraccio is a Chilean graduate from SCA. She began attending in 1989 when she was in the 6th grade. Now, her boys now attend SCA to receive the same Christian influence that she received.”

Doing a preinterview before sitting down and capturing her subject on camera helped Courtney dig deeper and find the emotional impact of the school on her.
