” My dream was to work in the entertainment industry. When I was 7 years old, I would run home after school and watch television. I didn’t watch it for entertainment purposes. While my neighborhood friends were outside playing hopscotch, jump rope, and basketball… I was glued to the TV screen. I was fascinated by television shows. I was dissecting the lighting, set décor, wardrobe, and dialogue! One day, I asked my mom, “Why are their names at the end of television shows?” My mom explained, “Those are the directors, producers, and all the people that created that show!” I responded, “Mom, just watch! My name will be at the end of shows when I grow up!” Little did I know I was manifesting something so great at the age of 7 years old!“
