"Who you are will always trump who you think people want you to be."
Best-selling author Brené Brown kicks off WDS 2012 by calling on the audience to be "uncool". Don't posture. Don't be who you think you're supposed to be. Don't try to fit in. Just be who you are -- which is probably uncool.
Last month two neat things happened. The first, I worked on a project that captured The Shout, a family of courageous poets. The second was that I was able to do so in collaboration with two other local talented filmmakers Scott Clark and Chris Luong. We call ourselves tres leches. Enjoy!
