I’m Beth, I’m 17, I’m a Feminist with a to do list, and I want to Act, Write, and do everything. I don’t have a very good track record with keeping blogs but lets see how this goes!
Drama is what I’m passionate about, television in particular, but I love all types of drama.
I know the drama industry is extremely hard to have a successful career in, never mind the fact I’m a woman, working class, and autistic. I love the industry and I know that is where I want my future to be, but there are so many things I want to change about it.
One thing I want to change is that I’ve noticed that there are so many men who write, direct, and star in their own work such as Ben Affleck, Clint Eastwood, Charlie Chaplin to name a few, however, there aren’t that many women who do the same. The ones who do, such as Emma Thompson, Mindy Kalling, and Michaela Coel are brilliant at it, but it is so hard for a woman to be taken as more than job title.
I want to have a career with a comma. I want to have a career with an ‘and’. I want to have a career with an ‘as well as…’
So this is my blog. I do tend to ramble and have no clue where it will go, so this is a blog of rambles.
Sorry in advance.
