Message from Chris Pope:
I would like to personally invite everyone to listen to this talk I’m having with Samantha. We all know what it is like to be a fan of someone or something we love or admire, yet not everyone has the guts to do what this amazing girl has done, such as really put ourselves out there for the world to see.
I get insane amounts of fan mail to go through all week long for Ellen, as you can imagine it can get tedious at times. Part of what I do for my clients like Ellen is sort through mail involving fans, trolls, and spam. Ellen gets very little troll mail, but tons of spam and tons of fan mail. Lots of fan made videos, lots of fan made audio, pictures, you name it, I’ve probably seen it/heard it, but Samantha put together a video in which she opens up her heart and really speaks to not just Ellen, but all of the fans out there. I know for me personally, it reminded me what it is like to be a fan of someone/something.
When is the last time you opened yourself up and exposed yourself to something you loved or admired? I think we can all learn something from this young beautiful canadian fan girl, don’t you?
