Storyboard Text

  • Time redefines beauty.
  • " She was a beautiful baby."
  • Struggles prompt growth.
  • "She tormented herself about not looking like the others." "The doorbell sometimes rang for her, but no one seemed to come and play in the house or be a best friend."
  • "If I had that skin..."
  • Experience reveals wisdom.
  • Emily has an amazing gift. "We have left it all to her, and the gift has as often eddied inside, clogged and clotted, as been used and is growing."
  • Beauty changed from a focus on physical appearance to a focus on who Emily became when she did what she was born to do - comedy.
  • "They gave me first prize; they clapped and clapped and wouldn't let me go."
  • Emily's physical, mental, and social struggles as a child motivated her overcome these challenges and become a successful comedian.
  • Knock, knock...
  • Who's there?
  • Throughout the beginning of Emily's life, her mom didn't know how to help Emily with her talent. But as Emily grew older, her mom gained much wisdom about motherhood, although it was too late to help Emily.
  • "My wisdom came too late. She has much to her and probably little will come of it."
