WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT TGS?
My favorite thing about TGS is the melting pot of beautiful, creative, and ambitious BIPOC. It truly feels like a safe place where I can relax, vibe, learn, and continue to thrive!
If You Could Have Dinner with 3 people, dead or alive, who would you choose and why?
I would first choose Belle Hooks because of how much I admire her as a feminist, writer, and activist. I would love to hear how she pushed past writers block and maintained courage to always speak with conviction.
Viola Davis! Because I love her and that book of hers really broke my heart and put it back together. I am in awe of her journey and I could only dream to reach the heights she has. So yeah I’d have to talk her ear off lol
My great grandmother, to show her how far we’ve come.
What is your favorite quote or mantra?
