Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

"Don't wait for permission to make your art..." - Felicia Day

My sHero would be the great Felicia Day.

Felicia day is a an amazing actress and a great writer. She started her acting career at age 7, and graduated top of her class, and was even a National Merit Scholar. She was offered a spot at the Julliard school of Music but turned it down for the University of Texas at Austin on a violinist scholarship. After graduating from college she headed out to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting. In turn she landed various roles on independent films and t.v shows here and there, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and the famous internet sensation "Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog". Felicia loved playing video games and along with some friends created "The Guild". "The Guild" started as mini episodes on YouTube. The show is about gamers who play an MMORPG game titled "The Game". The show revolves around their everyday adventures in the game. Felicia created the show for fun, but also wanted to show that the stereotypical "nerd" and "geek" were not the only ones who play video games. 

Felicia Day is my sHero because she is one of the few women who have managed to take the reins of the internet and broadcasted her creations to everyone out there. She is a prominent figure around Comic Conventions everywhere and is a well known "geek" figure. She is a reminder that women can do anything and can be anything they want. 

"When you are really knowledgable and passionate, it's hard to be stumped..."

- Felicia Day
