On the Miami University website, they featured Beth Stelling in their Advancement Awards section. On Beth's page, she quoted Charlie Kaufman who she said is a patron of the coffee shop she worked at in Los Angeles.
"'Say who you are. Really say it in your life and your work. Tell someone out there who is lost, someone not yet born, someone who won't be born for 500 years. Your writing will be a record of your time, it can't help but be. But more importantly, if you're honest about who you are, you'll help that person be less lonely in their world, because that person will recognize him or herself in you, and that will give them hope. And it's done so for me, and I have to keep rediscovering it; it's profound importance in my life. Give that to the world rather than selling something to the world. Don't allow yourself to be tricked into thinking that the way things are is the way the world must work and that in the end, selling is what everyone must do. Try not to.' Charlie Kaufman (screenwriter, director and patron of the coffee shop I worked at my first year in Los Angeles)"
She is now 36 years old.
