What's really resonated with me about this season so far is that fact that Jyoti Amge actually had dreams and aspirations to be an actress and this show is giving her the opportunity to do that! I also appreciate the ending! What a wonderful message to take away from a show that is inherently supposed to be scary. Way to look on the positive side!

I was totally talking to Lucia about this a couple of weeks ago after your speaking engagement! I would even take it a step further and mention the fact that there are television shows that are actively hiring actors with disabilities to play characters that are so nuanced and that challenge our perceptions. I think I specifically mentioned Peter Dinklage, who won an Emmy for his work on Game of Thrones, Lauren Potter from Glee, who has some of the best one-liners on the show and some of the best comedic timing, and Jamie Brewer from American Horror Story, who in the last season was given a love interest in the form of a hot neighbor who was actually interested in her character for who she was as a person. There are of course many more, but those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head right now!
I totally had an experience similar to this! It was my sophomore year at Grand Valley and I was leaving for class while it was pouring. I walked out of my dorm and opened my umbrella, only to have it break in the wind. I had to walk to the opposite end of campus and I got soaked! I then had to sit through two and a half straight hours of lectures. Absolutely miserable! haha

Great post, Elizabeth! These truly are some great building blocks that are the core of some of my longest lasting friendships and those that are just starting out!
