Roll out the red carpet for one extraordinary woman. Meet Chloe Zhao who is the second female director of the Academy Awards to win Best Director for her film, Nomadland. She is also the first ever woman of colour to win the award.

The 93rd Academy Awards, celebrated in LA this week, was the most diverse night of nights yet. With almost half the nominees in the acting categories performers of colour, and more women nominated across all categories than previous years.

In Chloe’s moving speech she shared what inspires her, by saying: “I’ve been thinking a lot lately of how I keep going when things get hard.

“I think it goes back to something I learned when I was a kid. When I was growing up in China, my dad and I used to play this game. We would memorise classic Chinese poems and texts and we would recite it together and try to finish each other’s sentences.”

“There was one I remember, so dearly. It’s called the Three Character Classics and the first phrase goes – (speaking in Mandarin) ‘People at birth are inherently good.’”

“And those six letters had such big impact on me as a kid. I still truly believe that today. I have always found goodness in the people I meet, everywhere I went in the world. This is for anyone who has the faith and courage to hold on to the goodness in themselves. And the goodness in each other, no matter how difficult.”

“This is for you. You inspire me to keep going,” she said.
