Writer Statement

I write to bring characters in my every day to life, but exaggerate them. I love exaggerating the daily norms and showcasing "real" people, with high stake motivations and desires.

There are always characters named after real people in my life, whether I have stay connected to them or not. This script transforms our modern society and tells the story of the way modernized living has the potential of looking and feeling like 3 million years from now. Wo[men] Go To Jupiter, is a pulse-pounding dystopian Sci-Fi “Dramedy,” that is set 3 million years into the future.

Although, we can not predict everything this far into the future, we can use our imaginations. I used my imagination to showcase revolutionized technology, hair, makeup, gender roles, love, passion and heart break.

I showcase what worlds look like when they collide both figuratively and physically. This is a new definition for feminism and gender identity. f genders had been separated many years ago, how has this evolved who we are as humans? How does this define our insecurities, weaknesses, opportunities, successes, set backs and future endeavors? How do we understand the importance of comfort, yet losing the sense of control we have over our bodies? How does the world evolve as far as society standards and quite literally, how does our skin and our hair change due to the changes in our environment? On Jupiter, men are living and replenishing their numbers unbeknownst to women. Additionally, men have absolutely no clue women exist.

I want to take readers and viewers through a journey of the unknown with endless possibilities for building a future where things are so accessible, it positivity (or even negatively) impacts our mind sets and futures to come.

We love men, we love women, but what does the world look like without one another on the same planet?

This series is personal to all women and highlights core facets society would drastically change without the existence of men.

Who better to tell this story than a creative team of nearly all women? This is us, writing about us. That’s entirely our right and duty.

This story will always be relevant and is important to tell now more than ever as it highlights progressing environmental catastrophes. Our story also showcases humanity’s potential advancements along with the ways history could repeat a few million years into the future.
