Trailer Alert: My Journey Beyond HS This little dork spoke at TVLC, a gathering of hundreds of leadership students in the Tri-Valley! Last time, I was at this conference as an attendee. I was a nerdy, energetic student with a dream of taking on the entertainment industry during college. Since then, I’ve had my photography published, I’ve covered red carpets, I’ve contributed to nationally-acclaimed film & TV research, had 11 professional roles and graduated from a top university as a full-tuition merit scholar and Salutatorian. I got hired at the #1 place to work and largest social network in the world. I had no idea about my destiny, I just knew it was huge. Students came up to me with hugs, questions about USC, Lucasfilm, Instagram, huaraches, saying No, being Black.. all because I got to spend an hour with 300 of them, clowning around. Is this real life? Highlights up on my IGTV now!

I spoke about my journey beyond high school and best tips for managing overcommitment, pursuing passions, checking in with yourself and identifying who you are OUTSIDE of your schedule. More highlights up on my IGTV now!)))
