    👩‍👧🌟Turn Your Childhood Dreams into Reality: How TV Writer Leore Berris Went From Michigan State to Netflix

    👩‍👧🌟Turn Your Childhood Dreams into Reality: How TV Writer Leore Berris Went From Michigan State to Netflix

    What’s your biggest dream? Today’s guest’s biggest dream was to write. On the show we will reveal how she achieved that dream after many years of envisioning it, working toward it, getting close and then finally taking the leap and getting her big break. For the past several years she has made her living writing for TV on shows like  KIPO AND THE AGE OF WONDERBEASTS, JURASSIC WORLD: CAMP CRETACEOUS, and MY LITTLE PONY: MAKE YOUR MARK. She's also explored younger audiences, writing for shows, such as Nickelodeon’s BOSSY BEAR and Mattel's THOMAS & FRIENDS: ALL ENGINES GO!  Leore’s story is one I wanted to tell because once we moved to LA, I learned that I actually had a significant impact on her creative journey. It’s an important reminder that one sentence of encouragement can really change the course of someone’s life, and then when you see a talent in someone, you should never be afraid to reflect it back to them. It’s also just a testament to what belief in YOURSELF and your creativity can do. 

    From this conversation you’ll learn:

    -The power in complimenting ones creative work

    -How to keep your creative passions alive while working a day job

    -The behind-the-scenes process of writing for the screen

    -How to build your connections & get your start in Hollywood 

    -How to overcome imposter syndrome & build unwavering faith in yourself and your talent 

    Also, a little reminder that In the month of April, Unleash Inner Creative is collaborating with Michigan State University’s (My Alma Mater's) student-run radio station, Impact 89FM. Each week this month, you’ll hear from a remarkable MSU student or alumni who is doing great, creative work out in the world and/or on campus. These episodes will air on both the Impact radio station, 89FM, as well as on the usual Unleash Your Inner Creative podcast feed.
