Kernaussage 1 von 6

The author is a feminist, sister, mother and lifelong storyteller.

As a child growing up in Chicago, Illinois, Rhimes’s favorite hobby was playing pretend, which in her case meant hiding away in her mother’s pantry to invent stories and characters for all the non-perishable food items. In her head, cans of yams ruled the green beans and the tomato paste plotted to overthrow their regime. Rhimes’s powerful imagination could bring a shelf of cans to life, transforming them into tyrannous monarchs and mutinous citizens. She still reminisces about this in interviews today!

It’s not so hard to deduce: young Shonda was introverted. Shy, yet deeply creative, Rhimes fondly recalls how she would smuggle books outside when her mother forced her to go out and play.

Rhimes has been a storyteller as long as she can remember. This passion, combined with her fiercely competitive nature, carried Rhimes through Dartmouth College to USC Film School, all the way to her current role as director of her own television production company, Shondaland.

Shows created by Rhimes were part of the vanguard of television featuring women of color as protagonists. Rhimes remarked that, 50 years ago, a black woman from a middle-class background – a person like herself – would have been serving Hollywood television executives food in the boardroom, not running her own TV shows and company.

Rhimes has a name for highly successful people (such as herself) who were raised non-white and non-male: FODs, which stands for first, only, different. But how did Rhimes get to where she is today? By seizing opportunities, keeping her options open, learning continuously and delving into the process of becoming her own being.

In college, Rhimes was determined to become the next Toni Morrison, who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1993. Thankfully, Rhimes soon realized she had to chase her own dreams, not walk in the footsteps of someone else. Funnily enough, when Rhimes later had dinner with Toni Morrison, Grey’s Anatomy was all the Nobel Laureate wanted to talk about!
