Making It In High Heels

Inspiring Stories by Women for Women of All Ages

Growing up is full of struggles for any young girl; Shobha paints a visual picture of what it was like to grow up as a first generation Canadian in an immigrant family.  To make matters more trying for Shobha, she was the seventh child born to a low income family who resided in an unsafe neighborhood subjected to violence, racism and belligerence.

It was in high school where Shobha picked up on her love for music.  She worked hard and found a sense of belonging. Writing became Shobha’s platform to share what she has experienced, and learned, as well as using this medium to help others.

~ Like every writer, I have experienced y share of writer’s block. Looking back, I can almost always pin that writer’s block on a lack of being challenged in life.  In other words, going through hardships can be the best inspiration.. ~

Shobha’s story enforced the idea that regardless of your identity, age, career, social standing or morals — challenge will always confront you.  It is the way that we equip ourselves to face the challenges that life throws at us that determines our futures.

She is a musician, singer, songwriter and actress.  Her name is Kate Todd.  And at only 20 years old, it is clear to see how Kate is “Making It In High Heels.”  Kate claims that it was the conditional support of her family, her rural roots and her desire to succeed that has made her who she is today. Kate became an actress when she was 14, claiming the role of Lily Randall in TV series Radio Free Roscoe.

~Within six months of signing with an agency, I found my next musical instrument was to be the guitar, as I had landed the lead female role on the TV show, Radio Free Roscoe, to be aired on the Family Channel in Canada, and The-N network in the United States.  I play a down-to-earth rocker chick who is an aspiring singer/songwriter! At this point, I had no idea just how huge this was and how it would change the next few years of my life. I went from attending a 700-student public school in the middle of a field, to bright lights and camera crews. ~

Kate discusses the support she received from her family, friends, and fans, and how she continued her education despite 70 hours work weeks on the set.   Kate’s success can be attributed to her very mature outlook and her confidence in herself.
