- The Breakfast Club (1985)
It’s a classic! Even if your high school years are far behind you, the anguish and conflicts of the film will still speak to you. It reminds me that everyone has to fight, even people who seem perfect. As Andrew Clark, the film’s athlete, says, ” We’re all a little weird. Some people hide it better than others, that’s all. This movie is full of unforgettable quotes like: “You should spend a little less time impressing others ” and many others.
- The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
The silence of the Lambs taught me that I, as a woman, was as capable, intelligent and strong as a man. If Clarice Starling can do it, I can do it, too. He also taught me that things are not always what they seem, that humans are strange and scary, and that trust is not something that is blindly given.

- Harry Potter (2001-2011)
Harry Potter showed me that you can survive violence and become stronger. Hermione taught me that knowledge is power and Luna taught me that being different is not inevitable and that you have to find your way rather than imitate others. Rejected for 13 years because I was an autistic library rat and introverted, I needed it.
