#femalefriday ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป thatโ€™s a thing right?! Well, even if it wasnโ€™t, it is now because we wanna show off one of our other writers! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Carole Kaboya is a University of Georgia Theatre Alum who has worked professionally in the thriving film and TV industry in Atlanta for the past 12 years. It was at UGA that she began her acting and writing career with original scenes and monologues. โœ๐Ÿผ After countless struggles to find unique audition materials and characters she could connect with, Carole began writing original content for herself and others. That soon led to various writing jobs for clients both in and out of the entertainment industry as well as her web series "Bethany". ๐ŸŽฅ As a Casting Director and Associate (MTV's Scream, CW's Legacies) she recognized the need for actors to have unique content. ๐ŸŽž Carole's goal as a writer is twofold:
1) showcase an actor's individual strength as a storyteller and
2) tell stories that celebrate the beauty of diversity. โค๏ธ @carolekaboya
