Felicia Day Review
Actress, producer, writer, vlogger, gamer, reader, reviewer and geek, Felicia Day is one of the original Geek celebrities on the internet.
Pro Helps others
Felicia is one of the founders of the Geek and Sundry YouTube channel. Through this channel she's used her popularity and fame to put a spotlight on other aspiring geeks, artists and creators, allowing them to follow in her footsteps.
Pro Open about her path
Felicia has been open and honest about how she got to where she is now, pointing out the good and bad points she's been through to get there, and giving out advice based on her experiences along that route.
Pro Encourages people to accept themselves
One common trope found throughout Felicia's work is the theme of self-acceptance. As a child Felicia had always been encouraged to be an A grade pupil, making her a perfectionist and thus unproductive. As she learnt to accept that "just good enough" was good enough her productivity shot up and her life changed for the better. This was the realisation of who she was, rather than her attempting to live up to the aspirations of others; and thus far surpassing them.
Pro Passionate about what she does
Every geek needs a passion, and Felicia is no exception; though she is exceptional in the number of passions she's dedicated to. She's an avid reader of books and comics, plays a diverse range of computer games (some, such as SkyRim, obsessively), and immerses herself in many of the other geek culture she encounters.
Pro Works hard
Felicia may be more on the workaholic side of the scale than is healthy, but she recognises this and is learning to delegate and relax. Both of these traits (working hard & learning not to) are good traits in a role-model; showing people how to be successful, but also that there are other considerations if you want to get the most out of life.
