A college professor Tara kept in touch with, Rachel Goldberg, triggered Tara’s writing passions. The result snowballed into creating her own work.
“I am not going to wait for someone to cast me in their film to spark my creativity. I am going to create my own passionate work, because nobody is going to do it for me. I can’t sit idly by as everyone else does what I know I can”.
