Vanessa Williams in person is like... the camera cannot capture how gorgeous this woman is! She is just so breathtaking.
There are so many people who will try and make you feel like your opinion doesn't matter, and I've learned how important it is to use your voice.
Never let anyone silence your voice.
As an artist, you want to stretch. That's the only way you're going to grow. If I stay inside my comfort zone, do roles that I've done before, then I'm never going to get better as an actress.
I am oftentimes the ear for some people that I know and love. Which I like being. I don't know if I'd like being a marriage counselor, though, because that's too deep for me.
