What defines us?
My story began moments before parents evening, in a busy school corridor, at the tender age of eight. I confessed that I wanted to be a dancer and - to my relief - mum was supportive. Hope flourishes and life becomes exciting, but over the course of time, inner conflict occurs in the form of negative, echoing voices from friends and foe.
Now, I define myself. I serve up a refreshing truth as I showcase the reality of being rejected from tables, and my motivation behind making the decision to build my own. Life has moulded me into someone new and I like Her.
The Songstress is a short film, details of its premier and release will be available soon.
