Storyboard Text

  • I was born and raised for most of my life in Jackson, Mississippi, living with my parents, siblings, and my maid  Demetrie.
  • After my parents got divorced , when I was  young, I had no real role model in my life. They would constsantly argue and began to ignore me. 
  • Through the emotional loss of my  parents, the bond between me and Demetrie strengthened. She taught me why things were the way they were between family and maid. She taught me to always believe in myself and use my voice.
  • After I was old enough, around 20, I decided to follow  Demetrie's advice and move to New York City.  I wanted to broaden my horizons and move out of the enclosed state of Mississippi.
  • After living in New York for a few months, I began to take note of the major differnces between here and Jackson. It was here I decided to write a novel about the life of an African American maid in the 1970s.
  • After  months and months of trying to share my experience with my African American maid in Mississippi, I was finally able to publish my novel , The Help.
