INSTA-THERAPY Session 1 - 'ISSA BECKY'

Yes, it is official! I suck at blogging; It's to the point where I forget I even have a blog. I'm so sorry because there are some loyal people who actually use to enjoy my post. Just know, whenever I have something really good say, I'll always come back here to say it, lol. 
As of today, i'm just  here to share something funny that I've created. I've been struggling to create a 1 min series that represents all that I am. As you know, IG allows 1min. videos and pictures just aren't enough for me. If I post a picture than my caption is a year long, lol. 
However, I thank God for this creative download, I hope you enjoy it!

What Have I Let LA Do To ME?

Last week I did what God told me to do. I cast my net further. I know it's a vague statement, that's what I thought when God first required me to write it down then to say it out loud. That's how God talks to me, he requires me to write it first than speak it. In college I simply needed to go to class, take notes and when it was time for an exam I would simply rewrite my notes and that was studying for me. Today, I have a to do list for the week, for each day, a monthly business plan, I could continue. Point is, once I write it...

   So at the beginning of 2017, just before finishing my vision board, God said 'Cast your net further.' I said, uhmm ok and I added it on my vision board. Then in January my pastor has began saying that our church has a 'Global Mandate', I heard him but I mean, what did that mean for me?

  In the wake of a 'slow' season of work I got in covenant with God in a new way. Something that was revealed was that the Global …

HEAD SHOT PHOTOG & PROMO CODE INCLUDED

Hey guys,

Happy Monday!!

So Pilot season 2017 is over.  As a newer actress, pilot season isn't 'for me' just yet. What I mean by that is, I use pilot season as a time to identify the appetite of the industry along with assessing my immediate and long term goals.  I decided to shoot with the super talented Photos by Jamaal again.  My team weren't requesting shots but I noticed a void in my tools and asked Jamaal to capture some very specific looks for me. Below are just a couple!


These shots make me so happy because they are soooo KIVA. Jamaal is so easy to shoot with, so detailed oriented that I could relax and not worry that he understood my vision yet he is so laid back that he makes the environment so easy to let go and create. Prior to this shoot I hadn't EVER used my natural curls in my head shots, I'd tried but I'd never liked the images until now. I adore these shots and so does my team.










I'm nervous to post the head shots we did with red lipstick…

I play PATTERSON!

Hey guys,

I know, I know I don't blog as often as I use to I think Instagram is to blame, lol. But if you're reading this, thank you for being loyal to this blog and I have some new news!! Well 'newish' lol

STREAMING NOW on AMAZON PRIME the 2nd and Final season of HAND OF GOD and I'm honored to be in the SERIES FINALE EPISODE!




I will never forget booking this job, I cried like a baby. Each year my very thoughtful friends and family begin asking me what my birthday plans are and, since becoming an actor, I always respond by saying 'Hopefully I'll be working'. Listen it only sounds odd if you aren't an actor lol. We don't work everyday but we work everyday. What I mean is, I can literally count the number of days I'm on set each year. So Last year, like years prior, I prayed for work and God said YES when I booked this beautiful role just days before my birthday. I play Patterson a Med School drop out turned crime world underground medical go…

Actor Milestone- Hello NBC!

Image
Hey Guys, 
  I wanted to share another actor milestone with you. Taping this show was a full circle moment for me. I'd read this script during a time when I wasn't working, It was so slow for me that I was 'creating' work for myself. I was reading scripts, I was getting on camera daily, I was sowing seeds that only God knew I was sowing and a little over a year later, this was a moment of harvest. I auditioned for the first time for this casting office and for this show, that I'd loved before it ever had a cast attached to it, and I booked and had an opportunity to tell an incredible team of actors how proud and inspired I am by their work. This was humbling, exciting and so perfectly aligned in God. 

  I pray I inspire someone into their purpose. I pray someone will read my words and say she is on assignment. I pray I never give a false perception of this business.  I pray I have an opportunity to use my platform for a purpose. I pray my work makes it easier for …
