Taken from my Twitter.
I’ve wanted to be an actor since I was very young. But then depression hit me and I lost my passion for most things in my life. The only thing I had was one Youtuber called @iisuperwomanii who put some happiness back into my life. I was obsessed with her videos and I used to watch every video she uploaded on Monday and Thursday. I didn’t realise until I’d been watching her for a few years that she had started posting on YouTube because she was recovering from depression. From that moment, she became my inspiration. The person I looked up to and still do to this day. Not being able to see her on her #AT2UI tour killed me. Not being able to buy her book really made me sad (I still don’t have her book yet). Then she announced she has started her own production company, @unicornislandprod and from that day, I remembered why I wanted to be an actor. I wanted to meet her and even work for her. She has broken so many barriers for women, advocating for women’s rights, campaigning for girls in Kenya to go to school and have an education and being a goodwill ambassador. She even recently announced she would be getting her own late night Show on @nbc which is history making in its own right. Am I crazy for having these dreams? A lot of people would say “Yes you’re crazy!”.But their criticism makes me more determined to prove them wrong. I will meet Lilly one day, and I will become an actor and prove to everyone who said I couldn’t, that I can. And I did. - 3 days ago
