Talli Roland's new book, Watching Willow Watts, is now available on Kindle and other ebook platforms. To celebrate, Talli has organised this 'If I Could Be Anyone, I'd Be...' party!
How does it work?: All you do is come dressed as that one person you've always admired, longed to impersonate, or just plain envied. All you need to do is post a photo of your chosen one (dead or alive) along with an explanation why you've picked that person. Easy, right?
Who would I be? I'd be Katharine Hepburn.
Why? Hepburn was a woman who never gave up on her dream. Or sacrificed her principles to please others. Despite her early success, her brash personality and unconventional behaviour initially turned audiences away. But she masterminded her own comeback, buying the film rights to The Philadelphia Story and sold them on the condition she was to be the star. She went on to become one of the most acclaimed actresses in the world by determination, hard work and talent.
Hepburn reminds me never to give up on my dreams. We can all control our own destiny if we work hard enough.
"The thing about life is that you must survive. Life is going to be difficult, and dreadful things will happen. What you do is move along, get on with it, and be tough. Not in the sense of being mean to others, but being tough with yourself and making a deadly effort not to be defeated."
Who would you be?
