Michelle Yeoh's Historic Win!

How special was it to see Michelle Yeoh shatter that glass ceiling and make history as the first Asian performer to win the Academy Award for Best Actress? Both Michelle and Ke Huy Quan's speeches were so moving and impactful for different reasons. I couldn't help the tears.

If you haven't had the chance yet, you should check out Michelle's interview from the Oscar's Press Room last night. I've included the link below. It's so inspirational!

"Don't give up. Never give up. Don't let anyone put you in a box."- Michelle Yeoh

Thrilled for Michelle and her award, she really went for it and I loved that she inspired everyone that you are never past your prime :) LOVE THAT.

Yes! The ageism problems in this industry, especially where actresses are concerned, are ridiculous and unnecessary. It's NEVER too late to achieve your dreams and it's never too late to try something new.
