push the social hegemony
As a writer, I want to change the game. I want to focus on Original content, not remakes, adaptation, and plotless films just to rack in the dollars. Don't get me wrong, all types of content is needed, but I personally want more truth out there. Ask a person who's not from America to describe the United States and their answer will be based off of what they've seen through media. We are a nation of diversity, but why won't our media show that?
Growing up a Navy brat & raised by a single mother, I lived in all areas from the "ghetto" to the suburbs. That allowed me to gain friends of all ethnicities, age groups and social classes, which shapes me as a writer. This is why I can create relatable & truthful stories that will resonate with an audience, because I lived it with them, or heard the story of someone who has.
As the baby boomers begin to retire, it's up to us to decide if we will continue to tell people that Santa Clause is real, or finally reveal the truth.
It all starts with me, the next generation.
