Karen Salmansohn once said, "Choose to focus your time, energy and conversation around people who inspire you, support you and help you to grow you into your happiest, strongest, wisest self." When The Trauma Survivors Foundation became involved with the filming of the movie Creed 2, we knew we would meet people along the way who found the story of Rocky Balboa as inspiring as we did! We also knew we would find people from Philadelphia, Delaware, and New Jersey who "just got it" when we talked about how truly special Philly culture is to people.
Our friend and volunteer extra for the movie Creed 2, Jen Bazzanella, is one of the people who "just gets it". Jen shared a few pictures with us and gave us a glimpse into what the Philly culture is all about... "I wanted you All to see the photos. Rocky has been a huge part of my life growing up outside of Philadelphia. I’ve instilled the love we have for those movies in my kids and their cousins from the time they were little. It’s a great story for the city of Philadelphia and the people who grew up there. I graduated from the University of the Arts in 1996 with a Bachelors degree in film and can say that Rocky was one of my inspirations from childhood on. Just trying to keep that inspiration going with the next generation. I hope you all enjoy the photos. They were from a few years back, but I take all of the kids to the steps each year for a “Rocky Run”! I’ll post more as they come. Thank you for the opportunity to be involved in a film legacy that shaped my childhood. I’ll be on set again next week. Cheers!" Yo Jen! We love you! Keep it real and keep it Philly!
