I plan on spending the rest of my life telling stories through the eye of the lens – stories about subjects that really matter in this world. I hope to shed light on difficult issues, to create dialogue, raise awareness, to inspire and to make a difference. I just can’t wait to tell the next story and the story after that, and the story after that.
As a survivor of domestic violence, my purpose now lies in changing the statistics through a preventative process in a holistic and inspiring way. My own experiences have driven me to become an advocate and an educator. I want to help empower all people to work towards ending violence in all its forms. Everyone has the right to feel and to be SAFE.
I believe that theatre has the ability to touch people, to arouse empathy as well as to effect social and personal change. While legislation and policy change are important civic instruments, perhaps theatre is more powerful, better at engendering and cultivating a living, breathing culture of human rights.
