Sensual. Sexual. Powerful. Feminine. There are so many different of facets of womanhood. To deny one of them is to deny them all. You can’t just wake up one day and say ‘I’m a grown woman.’ It’s a process that starts when you’re a young girl and gradually develops in your teens and twenties. You’ve got to go through some growing pains before you’re aware of the transition. Like a shy little child realizing she has a songbird-voice inside of her. Or the first time Clark Kent notices he’s not like the other kids. You too have superpowers. You have the ability to move mountains. To birth a nation. To end wars. Within that body you have the ability to love and be loved. And no matter what’s going on in your life or the world, you will be triumphant. We know all of this lives inside of us, but sometimes we forget.
It took a while for me to come into my own. I often felt like I had to choose one trait of womanhood like brains or loyalty and commit to that, not realizing that those other things like compassion and beauty mean something too. Even with the work that I do, I don’t always feel like that woman you see in photos. I slip in and out of character depending on the role I’m playing. But for this short film ‘SHE,’ shot in collaboration with KisforKinky, I came to realize that all of these different personas I’ve created actually do exist inside myself. The quiet girl remembering an intimate moment. The intellectual woman deeply involved reading a novel. That vivacious vixen dancing in the hallway. That’s all one person and she is me.
