I am a avid reader of Essence Magazine, so I am so happy to see this young lady on the cover. Through out the years Essence has recycled the same group of people to cover the mag but have seen a difference in the selection lately and all for it. This young girl star is bright and can’t wait to see what’s to come. Check out the pictures and interview.
Love the haircut and new attitude she is channeling. This girl is one to watch!
“I know that the role of Cinderella is primarily for a Caucasian girl, but it didn’t stop me from going in and it didn’t stop them from seeing me. There is a bit of intimidation. You think about Denzel, Viola Davis, and you think, Only great people can do Broadway. That was the scariest thing about it, but I’m the type who thrives on pressure.”
I realized that I’m a lot freer of a spirit. That was the beginning of me standing up for myself. I would love to have somebody but this is such a great time in my life, in my career. I really am liking myself.” What you’re ready for, you attract. So I think I have to do some introspection on why I’m attracted to people that can’t give me what I want. Maybe I’m not as ready for a serious thing as I think I am. The guys I end up getting involved with, they’re into the idea of me, but they really can’t handle what I’m about.
