What Qualities Make You Different And Unique From Everyone Else In The Industry?
The qualities that makes me different is I say what others don’t I’m not afraid to be myself at all times.
When it comes to my craft I like to bring a piece of myself to each role and my experiences I had in my life. Before I entered into the entertainment industry I lived a crazy life I’m actually writing a semibiographical series on it.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do. Paint a vivid picture of the experience so readers can take the journey with you.
I always knew I was meant to do this as child I just didn’t know it was job or career.
I used say catch phrases for my favorite characters from Favorite TV shows and Films. I was in a singing group Manchild as a kid but we broke up I knew I didn’t necessarily want to be a singer so I sought out acting.
I knew I was going to pursue when my grandmother was in the hospital I told her I was going to get into show business so I could pay her medical bills.
She told me not to worry about her and promise her I wouldn’t give up when she died I vowed to keep my promise to her.
What Has Been The Biggest Challenge You’ve Had To Face And How Did You Overcome It?
My greatest Challenge was overcoming depression.
I’ve dealt with since I was young. At first I used to be ashamed of it, but the best way to get over it was to admit I needed help and know that I wasn’t broken.
I knew by sharing my experiences dealing with this it could help other people and what they’re going through.
Who are the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could elevate your career or business? Why these specific individuals?
The Top 3 people I want to meet right now is Byron Allen, Ice Cube and 50 cent .
I actually know 50 from back in the day.
It would be good to reconnect especially since I got scripts.
