Becky Curran

Becky received her Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Providence College, where she gained a passion for influencing change behind the scenes in the entertainment industry. Upon graduation and after 100 job interviews, Becky started working in the Creative Arts Agency, the world’s leading entertainment and sports agency. Five years later, she worked at CBS Television Studios, where she assisted with the casting of pilots and television series. During this transition, she also served as the Marketing Director and Co-Founding Board Member of the Catalina Film Festival. She also founded DisABILITY In Media, which focuses on positive disability inclusion storytelling through social media.
In high school, Becky took an interest in public speaking and participated in Forensics and Toastmasters clubs. Becky began her motivational speaking career in 2011. She delivered her first TEDx Talk in 2014.
Becky was born with achondroplasia, the most common type of short-limbed dwarfism. She stands 4 feet tall. Her parents always taught her to keep a positive outlook, no matter how harsh the outside world may be. She grew up participating in sports such as sailing, skiing, soccer, and swimming, amongst her “average” height peers. When people ask her about whether or not she likes being a little person, she always has the same answer. “I never want to change but I want the way the outside world reacts to my difference to change.”
