Canadian director and Firecrackers actress Karena Evans just had her “favourite year of all time.” Taken under DirectorX’s wing, Karena quickly saw her rise from intern to award-winning creator, directing Drake’s "God's Plan,” "Nice for What,” and "In My Feelings” music videos. Amassing 2018 awards after awards for her music video direction. Sharing her successes, stories and collabs via social, the 22 year old phenom is a “prolific visionary,” using her rapidly growing platform to inspire fellow women of color to believe in themselves and trailblaze their dreams.
