Growing up with a mom who had me at 16 was challenging to say the least. She did the best she was capable of doing and it taught me (among many things) to become a resilient and tenacious person. I come from a background that had zero knowledge of money and taking responsibility for my own financial future is something I really treasure (pun intended). I'm an actor, a writer, a creative and now I'm the executive assistant to a company I believe in. Life is turning out better than okay.
