To be alive. To be able to work. To be able to share with you guys that which wouldn’t be possible without you. Through all my times growing up…I have realized…This. Is. What. It’s. All. About. To be able to touch someone else as you all have touched me. If I can promise anything in this ever unpredictable world we are in, it is that I will always do everything in my power to do so and never let you down! Thank you for the constant unconditional support and love!! I stand with you!! Much love!
“I love when I see a movie and it’s like you’re not even in the theater, but you’re right there with the characters, in their world, and going through the experience with them. That’s what I hope to take away when I watch a movie, and I hope that’s what people experience when they see a film – any film – I’m in.”
Honestly, I didn’t have an accurate definition of feminism when I was younger. I didn’t quite see all the ways that feminism is vital to growing up in the world we live in. I think that when I used to say, “Oh, feminism’s not really on my radar,” it was because when I was just seen as a kid, I wasn’t as threatening. I didn’t see myself being held back until I was a woman. Or the double standards in headlines, the double standards in the way stories are told, the double standards in the way things are perceived. A man writing about his feelings from a vulnerable place is brave; a woman writing about her feelings from a vulnerable place is oversharing or whining. Misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born. So to me, feminism is probably the most important movement that you could embrace, because it’s just basically another word for equality.
