Introduce Yourself : Finally joining the "Introduce Yourself" lounge! by Bernice Ye

Finally joining the "Introduce Yourself" lounge!

Hello from Seattle!

I first heard about Stage 32 after watching the webinar with Chris Mack from Netflix, and after that, it was a no-brainer to join!

I'm new to screenwriting but I have been doing standup comedy for quite a while. A rebel "girl" born during China's one-child policy, I have always been an outsider and the one who beats the odds. I came to American by myself 16 years ago and worked my way up to be a leader in tech (Microsoft, Hulu, Disney), only to discover my true passion in standup comedy and creative writing. In a world that's divided more than ever, my passion is to bridge cultures and empower immigrants through authentic storytelling.

In Feb 2021, I left my day job at Hulu so I can focus on standup and screenwriting fulltime. Very glad that I found Stage 32, I hope to make more connections here!

Hi Bernice,

Wow what a story. You are so brave! Taking my hat off to you. Standup is very tough. But after coming to the USA by yourself I know you’ll crack it. I am Marjolein ( spoken as Mar-yo-line) but go by Mack. I am from Holland. I studied acting and theatre making in Amsterdam. After lots of normal jobs I missed being creative and turned to screenwriting. I also blog for Stage32. You can find me at on Insta and Twitter under @fadeintomack. I would love to introduce you to another screenwriter friend of mine. David DeHaas. I can help you build your connections. Let’s chat/mail/tweet or Insta and get your connections counter up, up, UP! Greetings Mack

Hey Bernice! Wonderful story.

Like you, I was introduced to the platform through Chris Mack, and then realised the great community of people that are sourced here. I am predominantly a screenwriter, so I would be happy to help you to tell your vision.

Hope you are doing well!

Monica Mansy

Hi, Bernice Ye, WOW what a great story! It's inspiring to hear about your steps to chase your passions over everything. What genres are you interested in writing?

Bernice Ye

Thank you so much for the warm welcome everyone :) Hello Monica! Starting off, I’m writing a tv pilot for a 30 min dramedy. I like telling stories serious/dark stories with humor which is something i do in my standup comedy too. Just finished my first draft and will work on my rewrite. As I learn my skills and craft better, I want to work my way up to drama and full feature too.
