Andrea Zuckerman was my childhood idol. Yes, she was a character in the original series of Beverly Hills 90210 but that did not make her any less of a hero to me.
She was editor of the school newspaper-’The West Beverly Blaze’ which I just thought was the coolest thing. She was Jewish, hip, well liked by everyone. She was super smart, proactive, passionate and she wore hats with flowers on. She was, in truth, everything I wished I was.
She was also Valedictorian when the gang graduated from high school in 1993. She gave a very poignant speech about how your friends will always be close to you regardless of distance and how we must be brave on the journey (The final line of which I have included as my final line).
Recently I’ve been thinking about the things I wish I was told when I graduated last year. Somewhat unrealistically I assumed I would fall into success and in fact this year has been quite a reality check. I wish somebody had told me something more and I wish that person was Andrea Zuckerman.

Project: 1 Minute Creatures
Release your inner Creature, get involved in our 1 minute Creature project. It’s all explained on the flyer! PLEASE PASS IT ON!
The aim of the One Minute Creature project is to encourage interaction between artists, to spread the Creature love and gain more exposure for all the artists involved. We want to explore the links between creative people and to discover new networks but mostly we just want to see what you guys create when asked to release your inner creature onto paper in just one minute. A one minute creature is more easily said than done! Have a go!
Thanks to Kate Eggleston Wirtz and her friend Lynne Chapman for their entries. We hope there are many more to come.
