Hi there, thanks for stopping by! I'm the founder of Hullabalu, building storytelling for the next generation. My last companies were in fashion and health. Two things about me: I believe that you are the change you want to see in the world and I dance like this amongst friends. A bit more about me here.
I know the feeling of “if I could just get a chance, I could prove myself” - but this is how it works: you prove yourself to get the chance.
This seems to have connected with people on Twitter, so I’m sticking it here for posterity. It often feels unjust that people discount you before you even have a chance to prove yourself… so don’t wait for them to give you a chance. Prove it. That’ll get their attention, guaranteed.

Whenever I have encountered a grown-up who seemed to me at all enlightened, I would experiment on him with my drawing Number One, which I have always kept. I wanted to see if he really understood anything. But he would always answer, “That’s a hat.” Then I wouldn’t talk about boa constrictors or jungles or stars. I would put myself on his level and talk about bridge and golf and politics and neckties. And my grown-up was glad to know such a reasonable person.
