Share something that you do that helps other people. Describe it as best as you can.
When I was in Delhi capital of India, I was working in a Call center. On the day I got my salary, not that much big amount, but at least I can support myself, so I was waiting for my friend at Saket Mall Delhi to hang out for a weekend and I saw some homeless kids having Pakora(snack) which is made with chilly I don't know I feel so sad with that because they are hungry but the pakora was too spicy for an empty stomach, so immediately I went nearby them and offer some sweets and biscuits they were happy. I still remember that day, my friend thank me for that and I was happy too. 

Why did you choose to help people this way?
Because they were hungry and I know how hard is hungry when I was a kid being a first child of my parents I have come across that experience so I can feel that pain.

What do you love most about helping others in need?
When some are hungry if I am able to help them then that makes my day.

Is there anything else that you want to tell us about the ways in which you are a storm warrior?
I make documentaries for social conflict wildlife and human conflict but still, I am new in this field.

I’m Jacob Rylander and I’m a Storm Warrior. I’ve lived a lifetime filled with service to others. I’ve voluntarily served my community and Nation by dedicating myself to a career in public safety. I began my transformational journey at 17 when I graduated high school and enlisted in the United Stars Air Force / Minnesota Air National Guard where I served as Aeromedical Evacuation Technician. Upon leaving the Air Force, I continued to pursue helping others by working for a rural county ambulance service in the mountains of Colorado. There, I served and answered any call for help with pride and professionalism. Calls that took me into people's homes to share in their loss and to the remote avalanche-prone areas of the backcountry to rescue those in dire need. Upon the unfortunate downturn in my parent's health, I returned home to do what I could. But even then I couldn’t help people and serve. I volunteered as a Reserve Deputy Sheriff and patrolled our rivers, lakes, and streams to ensure families knew we were there for them should the need ever arise. Arise it sadly did on numerous occasions. We were equally called upon rescuing a loved one as often as we were there to recover one. Even during what many would seem as an hour of darkness, I always took pride in knowing that however sad and unfortunate the circumstances, we were bringing a family closer closure. I continued to pursue answering my inner call to help and serve by returning to the Air Force, up this time as a Security Forces member and ultimately retiring as a Security Forces Investigator. My military career brought me to unique places and gave me unique experiences. Experiences that I can say without any personal doubt - made the world and my community and better place, because while we of5n train to take lives...it’s all about saving them. Tragically, my career was cut short after a non-combat accident resulted in the partial amputation of my left hand, leaving me partially permanently physically disabled. This was my darkest personal hour, an hour that actually lasts a few years and at times continues to haunt me today as I miss my full service and ability to serve and help others in a way I once was capable of. BUT... Thanks to others, I was able to see that service and helping others can be accomplished by other means than running into a burning building metaphorically speaking. I learned to volunteer with my local Veterans group to help our local Veterans and Military Families. I learned to volunteer with my local high school's education foundation to help them serve underprivileged students in need. Thus starting a new personal journey at the start of the global pandemic to learn basic video skills so that I could create a meaningful and memorable digital graduation ceremony for the high school I now work at. That success showed me the power of digital storytelling and inspired me to educate myself as best I could to create meaningful video content that would serve those I help and work alongside. It was fate that I stumbled across Storm Warriors FREE courses as their mission has been my life story and personal story for the last 20+ years of my life. I believe the universe intends for me to better learn these skills so that I could better serve and help those I know to tell countless stories and bring light to countless important issues. Thank you for inspiring others to speak up and show the world that you can make a difference by showing and telling a story. Stories create awareness...awareness creates change!

Why did you choose to help people this way?
Simply put, telling a story creates awareness...awareness creates change. People can’t work to solve a problem they’re unaware of or lack an understanding of. Video captures people’s shorter attention spans and is a logical media to get them engaged while providing an endless amount of personal creativity in execution.

What do you love most about helping others in need?

Knowing that even a simple deed or gesture however meaningless...can actually mean the world to just one or a few. I love knowing that my effort was often the difference between life and death. Today, the personal risks I take are not what they once were, but they certainly can often have the same impact and make the difference between life and death, right or wrong, just or injustice.

Is there anything else that you want to tell us about the ways in which you are a storm warrior?
I believe you can train to be a Storm Warrior, you can lea4n the skills needed to be successful. BUT at the end of the day, you have to have a personal level of passion, commitment, and courage to push yourself to a point that will bring attention to the calling. Passion to help others isn’t a skill you can teach as much as it’s a trait you build skill around.

Good afternoon Andre Miranda. When there is an activity in schools such as the Facultad de Cine C.C.C. U.C.
