An intelligent, energetic, educated woman cannot be kept in four walls – even satin–lined, diamond–studded walls – without discovering sooner or later that they are still a prison cell.
—Pearl S Buck (via itsquoted)
My (ex) husband *Steve hated this about me. And I’m glad he did, but I don’t think he was prepared for me to grass him up, because apparently, no one else had. They just walked away, or supported him… namely his family. He/they seriously underestimated me.
I am by all means, not gloating, but I am proud of my achievements. If I had met *Steve before my wonderful experiences and education, I would never have had anything to fall back on. But I do.
At sixteen, I left school with grades A-C in the following subjects: Science One, Science Two, Business Studies, Media Studies, English Language and English Literature.
At nineteen, I left college obtaining the following: Classical Music, Media Studies and Performing Arts.
At twenty-two, I obtained my Psychology & Sociology (with Politics & American Studies) Bachelor’s Degree.
At twenty-eight, I took a short Journalism course, which I passed.
I have also been fortunate to travel – a lot over the years:
Spain (Ibiza, Gibraltar, Nerja) – Portugal (Algarve) – Jamaica (twice) – Singapore – Tunisia – Finland (Helsinki five times) – Brazil (Rio De Janeiro, Salvador) – Dominican Republic – France ( twice) – Italy (Milan) – Dubai – Czech Republic (Prague) – USA (Miami, Las Vegas, Tennessee, Montana, Savannah, Atlanta) – Belgium (Brussels) – Hong Kong – China – Greece (Rhodes) – Bahamas (Nassau) – Turkey (Antalya) – Germany (five times).
My work history is extensive, ranging from office work, to acting/speaking roles in TV, Film, Commercials and Corporate Videos.
I have a lot to be grateful for. I have done so much, and no one can ever take that away from me. No matter how hard they try. 🙂
