I was raised to believe that women can be kind, creative, AND ambitious. As a child, I wanted to change the world for the better. I found my voice through the arts and was drawn to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. As I grew up, I was often confronted with the difficulties of being a woman in creative spaces. Despite the challenges, I remain optimistic that the industry is not only changing but improving. Today, I have to remind myself to approach the arts with the wonder and limitless ambition I had as a child. It inspires me to work harder to be heard, create my own work, celebrate the amazing women who came before me, and support the women who will come after me.
