Discovery Channel and a Proud Mother
by Victoria Challancin
On September 25th the Discovery Channel Latinoamérica (en Español) will begin airing the first of ten episodes of a new reality program called Norte a Sur: 5 en Ruta. It will chronicle the journey of five young Latinos who journey from Anchorage, Alaska, to Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, the northernmost and southernmost points in the Americas as they work with local pioneers to leave communities better than they found them. Each of the five young people have unique skills to offer this incredible undertaking.
My son, Zachary Popovsky, was chosen to be one of these five travelers. Zack is a photographer and more, who adds his unique abilities to those of the group. Here is a link to the show, which is interactive and will become more so once the series airs. Below that is the 2-minute video that Discovery Channel made of Zack, using his still photographs as a part of the montage.
A proud mother? You bet. For myriad reasons.
After many tries, I can't make the video link work. Just cut and paste the following url from YouTube:
