The past few days [at BANFF] have been empowering, overwhelming, and ferocious. I was thrown into the deep end and suddenly found myself speaking one on one with Hollywood executives and other professionals who I never thought would give me the time of day… I also had the chance to meet and engage with my peers and connect with others who have found themselves on the same crazy career path I’ve fallen into. I am so grateful for the everything I’ve been gifted with this year.
