Some people remember certain stages in their lives by significant national events, others by music, and some are like me- their lives are marked by the films that were released at the time. The majority of my childhood was marked by my obsession with a movie about a sinking ship and star-crossed lovers. The year I graduated high school, I witnessed the end of an era when a young boy wizard finally won possibly the greatest battle of good and evil to ever be committed to film. In my junior year of college, while I was feeling down, I went to my favorite actor’s latest film where he was one in a trio of underdogs on a business trip- and translated a nonsense phrase into a positive life motto. Last Christmas before moving out on my own, I saw my mother’s inner child reawakened by the iconic John Williams score that erupted from the walls, and the famous crawl that rolled down the screen.

Film has the power to not only entertain, but to educate, and inspire. Growing up, film was a major part of my life- and still is. More so than anything else, film shows the world as it is, or as we want it to be. It opens up windows to things we would otherwise never see. It provides us with a harsh reality, or a needed escape. As I grew older, I realized I wanted to make a positive change in society by working in the entertainment industry. As time advances, the industry has become more committed to diversifying the stories told on screen, and I would love to be a part of continuing that trend. To me, what’s most important is reaching people as I was reached. It’s a long story, but I was so impacted by film- that within the last year, I went from working at a call center in a small town in North Carolina, to living a stone’s throw away from the entertainment capital of the world- to working a major film festival- to seeing the actor who inspired me (twice), walking along the streets of Los Angeles- to marching with my fellow women in Park City- to growing up and realizing who I really am.

In a strange set of extraordinary circumstances, I found myself on the doorstep of Hollywood, and invite you to join me and I walk in the door…

  1. I’m so glad I found your blog! Films and pop culture are basically my life and I just started going to the movies by myself. I find it to be a refreshing experience and maybe even more enjoyable than going with others. Especially since I don’t always have the same opinion as those I go with. I look forward to reading more of your reviews! Also, I’m very jealous of you internship.


    1. Thank you so much! I appreciate it. I almost go exclusively go to the theater on my own because I can see what I want and form my own opinion. It’s pretty liberating! Will definitely be posting more reviews and internship updates!
