Earlier this week I attended an amazing event that celebrated women in the entertainment industry. Titled “Women of Hollywood: Keynotes and Cocktails,” I was honored to attend thanks to an invitation by the host and coordinator of the event, Melissa Grego. (Melissa actually did an interview on the blog recently which you can see here). It was so inspiring to see hundreds of women gathering together in an honest, real, off-the record atmosphere talking about their experience in this industry.
With the cast of Desperate Housewives in attendance along with the President of NBCUniversal Entertainment and the Chairman of Fox Twentieth Century, there was definitely some major girl power going on. It was extremely motivating to see other women doing so many amazing and successful ventures—they are paving the way for girls like me that ready to make their mark! It was an extremely happy day and I’ve still carried that happiness with me throughout the week thanks to this event.
I want to especially thank the lovely Melissa Grego who extended the kind invitation to me. She is such a mentor to me and I’m always grateful when someone with experience is willing to share their wisdom. She is a woman who leads by example as she implemented her idea into a full-fledged event with Hollywood headliners galore. The event was flawless and I’m so glad that I could be a part of it.
So if someone offers you an invitation, whether it’s to a movie (ah Twilight!!) or to the red carpet (one can wish?)—then please, say YES!
