A teen from a housing project in Red Hook, Brooklyn is Hollywood bound.

Luis Hernandez, the valedictorian of the class of 2013 at the Brooklyn School for Collaborative Studies, won a full scholarship to the University of Southern California to pursue his film directing career.

The teen spoke with Good Day NY on Monday about the difficulties of the past year as a victim of superstorm Sandy.

"My life was completely disturbed by this hurricane. I had to wait on two hour supply lines. Our elevator power was destroyed. I lived on the sixth floor and my mother had surgery. She was basically a prisoner for almost three weeks," said Hernandez.

The teen was supported by the PosseFoundation.org
