For the record, I believe that women and their doctors should have access to oral contraception when desired by the patient and medically appropriate.
I just love real characters; they're not pretentious, and every emotion is on the surface, they're regular working people. Their likes, their dislikes, their loves, their hates, their passions; they're all right there on the surface.

You have to be able to communicate the vision to the people in your organization so that they know where and how they should direct themselves on a day-to-day basis.
I walked on the Moon. What can't you do?
I've always been at the intersection of computers and whatever they can revolutionize.
I always feel like I'm warring with my womanhood and wanting the world to be better, and with my blackness - which is the opposite of whiteness.

Before I was ever a baker, I was a teacher. Or, at least, that is what I thought I was going to be. After O-levels, I went to art school in Wallasey on the Wirral, and my mate Cavan and I did a teacher training course.
My first club was FT Gern. I joined through my parents and friends. My father played for them and a friend from nursery school took me to training once. I was five at the time.

I don't make the best movies in the world, but at times, I do feel like I'm adding something to the cinematic community.
