I believe that diversity should be represented in the film industry and television, not just through their films but their castings as well. I believe that in today’s age and time, having a different ethnicity playing a lead role would actually draw more audience and viewers to want to invest in watching a film. I mean let’s look at some facts here, minorities can play the lead role just as good as the little roles that are always given to them. Jackie Chan has definitely been a good example of it. Bruce Lee’s, Enter the Dragon is a prime example of leading a successful film debut. I believe that a good reason to invest in the importance of having diversity exists in films and television is to display the many great potential actors that we already have.

Bert Lee Speak
44 perc 52. rész sao&mai

Hi, I’m Bert Lee, a college speaker, graphic designer and dancer. I understand how confusing and scary it can be for College students to meet expectations and set themselves for success. 

As a Hmong American growing up in Saint Paul, Minnesota, I’ve faced my adversities in project homes, the educational system and within myself. My identity was filled with self-doubt and expectations that I was afraid of. I felt powerless, loss of control over my life and who I was as an individual. This mindset deluded my attitude to think that my life and college experience sucked.

It takes courage, boldness and hours of self-reflection to become our best selves.
