(click it…watch it….you know you want to)
It’s of an ABC news report about Ashley White, one of seven middle school spellers who were featured in the documentary ‘Spellbound’. The film followed seven of the competitors in the national spelling bee, and Ashley represented the ‘pure (and poor) talent’, without the means to receive the type of education or tutoring the other competitors had.
Between her time in the bee and the release of the movie, Ashley’s ambitions were tabled as she pursued an alternate life course. The release of the movie helped inspire her to re-focus on her previous goals.
Happy Mother’s Day, Ashley!! and everyone!!
