Geena Davis dreamed to be an actress. During her high school, she felt left out and had low self-esteem because, at 6 feet, she was the tallest girl in school. After high school graduation, Geena entered New England College in New Hampshire and then transferred the next year to Boston University, where she majored in drama. She was once a model and eventually spotted by Sydney Pollack (an American film director, producer and actor) who was looking for a new talent. And this was the start of her acting career.

Geena Davis is fronting the Women's Sports Foundation campaign, she takes aim in support of Title IX, an Act of Congress focusing on equality in sports opportunities, now expanded to prohibit gender discrimination in United States' educational institutions. In 2011, she became one of a handful of celebrities attached to USAID (United States Agency for International Development) and Ad Council's FWD campaign, an awareness initiative tied to that year's East Africa drought. She joined Uma Thurman, Chanel Iman and Josh Hartnett in TV and internet ads to "forward the facts" about the crisis.

Time is too slow for those who wait,
too swift for those who fear, too long
for those who grieve, too short for those
who rejoice, but for those who love, time
is eternity.

A kiss makes the heart young again
and wipes out the years.
