@bethalina13: What’s a defining moment in your life? I’m very proud of my undergraduate Alma Mater – The University of Oklahoma. The most defining moment, of at least the last decade, was my choice to go to school there. I chose to leave my home of 18 years, and go to school 8 hours away where I knew no one, all because I wanted a fresh start. I still remember my parents’ shock (and hesitation) when I decided in late spring of my senior year that I was going to school at OU. They weren’t sure about the decision, but I never had more conviction about anything. As with most things in life, there was a ripple effect by choosing to go to school at OU. However, I truly feel that decision to start new at OU and get away from some negative high school influences catapulted me into adulthood. I made some of my best friends, I met my husband – and soon to be father of my child – and I developed so much into the person I am because of my experiences in Oklahoma. I’m sure anyone could say that about whatever college they attended, but I have such pride in my school that I continue to run the LA alumni club, and help with recruitment efforts. It’s a little piece of home throughout the year, sharing in experiences and love for the same place, whether it’s a football watch-party or an alumni wine-tasting. I’m a walking-talking success story for the University. The school set my foundation for adulthood (if that’s really such a thing) and for that, I’m forever grateful. #thereelwomen #universityofoklahoma #OU #picoftheday #photooftheday #women #female #love #film #television #TV #media #art #FilmEquality #womeninfilm #femalefilmmakers #empoweringwomen #womenempower #betterhollywood #womendirect #girl #movies #movielover #create #me #happy #instadaily #ladyboss #bosslady #girlgang http://ow.ly/i/gQWhn
