"Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.."

- Raymond Lindquist

Colorado is unique in the sense that it feels so familiar to those of us who fondly call it 'home', but it is an ever-changing and evolving place. It is only because people here continue to push for change and growth that it feels more and more like home as time goes on.

According to Tue Tran, director of "What Makes Colorado", it's the people that make Colorado unique.

"...After years of working in the banking industry, I sought inspiration in the form of travel and philanthropy. Being on the road gave me the courage to take the next step. Yes. I did what few people dare to dream of doing. I quit my job, filled up the tank, and drove away from a safe, stable life to pursue my dream of filmmaking.."
