    Dauer: 16:21

    Maisie is an actress, an entrepreneur, and an activist. Yet to this day, she has no formal qualifications to her name. Her career has been built upon a symphony of seemingly normal opportunities that evolved into extraordinary, life changing events.
    Maisie tells the story of working on what ended up becoming the biggest television show of all time from the age of 12. She discusses why she thinks right now is the perfect time to build tools for communities and how her platform, daisie, will redefine creative collaboration.
    Margaret Constance Williams, known as Maisie Williams, is an English actress. She made her professional acting debut in 2011 as Arya Stark of Winterfell in the HBO world phenomenon Game of Thrones. Selected among 300 British actresses, she plays the role of a tomboyish young girl from a noble family for which she won numerous awards.
    Her broad artistic life led her to co-found Daisie, a social media aimed at creative people in the world of arts, fashion, tv, film, photography, music, and literature. The aim of the app is to bring individuals from across industries together, to help foster collaborations with other artists and provide an alternative route into creative industries. Maisie said “Our main goal is to have a community of artists that are collaborating, uploading their work and sharing their projects.. helping others create their careers.”
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at www.ted.com/tedx

my dream is to become an actress and be in movies. though i feel like i’m not good enough or have the talent. i know that you can master it by taking acting classes but i feel like i’d get nervous and break down. my mom always tells me “Jess, half the people that try to become actors and actresses fail.” but i try to tell myself that it doesn’t mean i can’t do it. it’s the only thing that i seem to have a passion for however, i’m only 12. but child actors can do it! why can’t i? am i good enough? do i have the talent? what if i fail? what if people don’t like me? i have so many questions... but i hope i can look back on this one day and say i did it....
