Inspirational Person of the Week
Michaela Coel, is a British actress, screenwriter, director, producer, singer, songwriter, poet and playwright. She is the writer and star of I May Destroy You, a twelve-episode series for HBO and BBC One. The show is a "semi-fictional portrait" of Coel's life, drawing on her experience of being drugged and sexually assaulted. Coel describes the experience of writing the show as "cathartic" and hopes that people learn from it, to be kinder themselves. "It addresses issues of consent, race, youth culture and working in the media, with the kind of nuance that is rarely seen on screen", GQ says. Watch the trailer below.
