Becky Curran

Boston, MA

I was born & raised in Weymouth, Massachusetts. I graduated from Providence College in 2006. After graduating, I worked at Creative Artists Agency, in Entertainment Marketing. There I assisted in strategic partnerships, representation & product integration of corporate clients such as Coca-Cola, Delta, eBay, Harley-Davidson, Mattel, Moet & Chandon, Starwood Hotels, and V Australia. Most recently, I worked at CBS Television Studios, where I assisted with the casting of pilots & television series. In addition, I served as the Marketing Director & Co-Founding Board Member of the Catalina Film Festival where I coordinated film festival submissions, fundraising events, online auctions, sponsorship, and ticketing, along with creating a social media campaign to build awareness for the Catalina Film Festival and the Catalina Island Conservancy. I was born an achondroplastic dwarf, & I'm passionate about finding a way to change how little people & all people with disabilities are perceived in the media. With my site (beckymotivates.com) & speaking engagements, my goal is to change initial perceptions of what physically challenged people are capable of, while motivating everyone to set exceptional goals. I was recently recognized as an emerging leader at South Shore Stars' 2013 40 Under 40 Awards celebration.

Throughout my presentations, I share my commitment to educate the world about people with physical differences, while motivating everyone to set exceptional goals and work towards them. Speech topics include: Anti-Bullying, Creating Possibilities, Disability Education, Dwarfism Awareness, Goal Setting, Inclusive Environments, Overcoming Obstacles, and Vulnerability.
