Beyond Grateful

Saturday, April 22, 2017 made the Top Ten List of Most Memorable Moments in My Life.

Words will never be able to aptly express my gratitude to every single cast and crew member involved in this project. All of them worked tirelessly in bringing the book to life, including Executive Producer Sabrina Stewart; Director Jermaine Alexander; Director of Photography Amir Jaffer, and all the actors!

Thank you for making my dream come true!
