Charity Barger was fifteen when she decided she wanted to be actress, a writer and a lawyer. It seems like a long impossible list, but she was determined. And since that day, she has worked in front of and behind the camera. She fulfilled her dreams of being an actress and somewhere in the middle found herself in the position as a PA, assistant production coordinator, production coordinator, and then finally producer. She has written several screenplays including the one for the movie which she produced. As a writer, she started out publishing a book of poetry, then went onto writing several children’s stories for Innovations for Learning. Then, she realized her dream of publishing her first novel, “The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory,” followed by her second novel, “A Tendency Towards Love.” So, what else could she then to pursue her goal of being a lawyer. She is currently a full-time student with my eyes fixed on the realities of law school. I guess at fifteen she really did know exactly what she wanted from her amazing life. The Author’s personal accomplishments are admirable, and Charity Barger’s humble disposition, kind heart and unassuming outlook on life; despite all of her life’s achievements thus far, are nothing short of exemplary.
