@danielle.eliska @shieldthefilm: What’s

@danielle.eliska @shieldthefilm: What’s a defining moment in your life? I graduated undergrad and landed a writing job at a healthcare company as an instructional developer. I was making great money but was utterly unhappy. As a creative, it’s difficult to fit into a box. So, as I prayed for an exit door from corporate America into the creative field, I worked on my craft. I wrote first drafts of two screenplays over the course of the year I was with the company. They were doing massive layoffs and one morning, I was called down to HR. They gave me the “Unfortunately, we’re going to have to let you go, but you’re young! You’ll land something else quickly!” speech, and all I could do was ask, “WHERE DO I SIGN?” That was a defining moment—that my dreams were more than after work activities. I mean, I knew they were because the passion burned real in me, but the “asking and receiving” was the defining moment.
