I’m Scared of Success: One Black Woman’s Journey From the Bottom of the Film Industry with Vonti McRae
In this episode, writer Vonti McRae shares how her career journey in the film industry prompted her to share her truth in a post published by WomansENews. Vonti is a passionate writer of screenplays, TV episodic scripts and reality show concepts who has worked tirelessly in the media industry for over 10 years.
In 2016 she became an Online Film Instructor at the Academy of Art University teaching Screenwriting. In 2013 she won the Urban Action Showcase writers competition for her Action Crime Drama “Queenpin” and was named runner up for Best New Writer at the Action on Film Festival for her animated TV series, “Mob Rats”. Vonti holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Film from the Academy of Art University and a Bachelor’s in Mass Communications from UNC Prembroke.
In March of 2019, published by the WomensENews website, Vonti authored an article originally titled I’m Scared Shitless of Success now titled I’m Scared of Success. Vonti’s article described the Trillest emotions held by black women in corporate America….. fear, courage, self-doubt, confidence, not belonging, resiliency and open the world to a real look at the multifaceted world of the black woman corporate warrior. Like Vonti, many of us come from very humble beginnings and we continue to work hard to achieve the highest levels of success.
When I read this article, I immediately emailed Vonti and asked her to be a guest on the show…. because I have questions.
