Going Back to School In My Forties, I Have Been Freed By The Minx Mandate

7 years ago

I've gone back to school in my forties to finish. Not finishing school has been a sore subject that has been haunting me for years. Well I'm a single mom of a five year old who is enrolled in the film program at Community College. I am having the time of my life and have never felt younger. I was lucky enough to have run into the coolest teacher ever by the name of Madeline Minx. Everything she stands for is about being free and being yourself at any age, at any stage of the game. She even had a message written on the black board in front of the class:

The Minx Mandate is a movement promoting self-expression, backed by a D.I.Y. ideology. The Minx mandates you thinx for yourself; however, it sees the inherent contradiction in telling you what to think. Therefore we usurp the propagandic techniques and methods of the oppressive pan-hegemonic system that enslaves us — spreading our message through music, fashion, merchandising, product placement and other modern day forms of propaganda.

I loved it and instantly became a fan. I am lucky enough to be working with her as a Performance Coach on her upcoming film What Do You Thinx Of Madeline Minx? Being on set is an amazing experience. Here is a clip of Madeline trying to audition actors for the film-hilarious!
