Told my man the other day to stop postponing things 'til tomorrow cause we never know if we have tomorrow, we only have this very moment. Do what you need to do, today. ✨
No fear, no doubt, no disbelief.. just pure potentiality and a desire to grow 💕
One beautiful rice terrace masterfully sculpted to perfection ✅
One temporarily borrowed farmer’s hat (we thought it was a prop until the farmer started waving at us from the field 😂)✅
One very happy small town girl from South Carolina ✅
The slightest threat of rain to keep us on our toes ✅
The list could go on, but what I’m really trying to say is this day was perfection. Make no mistake, it wasn’t perfection because everything went perfectly. There were setbacks (day started late, traffic, flat tire), but nonetheless I chose to be happy...because happiness is indeed a choice. Just a small reminder that we choose what we fixate on and what gets to impact our mood. #nothingisperfect #choosehappy #beresilient #bali
As she breathe in the fresh air, puts her mind at ease, lets down her hair and lets it flow in the breeze, she wins. Let her eyes wander to all the beauty to be seen. If those toxic thoughts she still do ponder, then let out a scream. Scream until the pain is gone, until you no longer feel afraid. Open your eyes to a new dawn, let the darkness fade. No longer compare yourself or your flaws to others' perfections. Take the negativity off the shelf. Focus on your direction. Focus on your goals, never lose your fight. - Katy.A.Brown

They gave us two weeks to make a family, little did they know that throwing us into that kind of fire would create a bond both within and outside of the show. Working with all of you (both the ones pictured and not pictured) has been such a privilege. Thank you for your generosity. Thank you for your passion. Thank you for doing shots after a particularly brutal performance. Here's to Hansberry and here's to adding more color to the classical American canon 🥂
Orange is the new black 💥 #diani
I'm kind of a handful but you have two hands...
Let your light shine, so bright, so it hurts their eyes 🍃
No other can do it the way you do it 💥 💥
I prefere walking around barefoot and in a bikini 🧜🏿♀️🍃
Soooo...I couldn’t pick one caption for this so I’ll throw out several 😂.

2) Shalalala my oh my you know the boy’s too shy ain’t gonna kiss the girl (name that movie)
3) She want that lovey dovey..that kiss kiss (I love T-pain)•
Maybe y’all can do better? I challenge you to caption this whilst keeping it squeaky clean. 👼🏿 #thirstythursday #tbt #kissthegirl #bali
Office views 😌 This photo is slightly misleading in that I get to spend NO TIME in my office today. I have a morning performance, then I teach, then I set up for a donor banquet, then I go back and perform again. 😱 Somewhere in there I have to remember to eat and complete a required reading. It's a busy day, y'all. Wish me the best of luck in this grind heavy day and I wish you all the best of luck in yours. Let's get it! 👊🏽
"I could stare at you all day" 👅
So this is 21: Sleepy mirror selfies in the dressing room before a matinee. I am forever thankful to be playing this role. Beneatha Younger has been my dream ever since I first read A Raisin in the Sun. I always thought it would be years before I'd ever play her yet somehow at 20 years old I booked my dream role and here I am at 21 bringing her to life everday.
Joy. Gratitude. Exhaustion.
My three constant states of existence.
I'm so sad to see this show go.
Been drinking my water, exfoliating, and communing with nature. ✨
Trying to break the cycle of taking home papers to grade just to not grade them and take them back to work to grade them...
This is a Shona song whose storyline is the cry of the Zimbawean mother or parents rather. Due to the economic crisis amongst many problems, the people of Zimbabwe the youth in particular have been forced to relocate and move either West or East of the world and South Africa mainly.
They find themselves at the mercy of racism, abuse of all sorts and the most heartbreaking xenophobia from our South African brothers who seem to have forgotten so quickly that our people also fought for the liberation of their country and that our Zimbabwe was a hiding and survival place for their people during their war of liberation.
The parents are heartbroken at how poverty has separated them from their children.And live in constant fear for their childrens lives as they know the danger their lives in by just virtue of being foreigners in other countries. The parents turn to religion and God for comfort and they cry that they had hoped an angel would come to the rescue of their people but none seems to be coming. Hope sooner than later Zimbabweans will realise that no help is coming they are their own rescue plan. And that eventually the excellence of every single Zimbabwean combined with the right dosage of patriotism becomes the excellence of a nation. Love you Zimbabwe

How to turn your biggest insecurity into an asset ☝🏾❤
After a pretty long trek, we arrived at this waterfall that was blocked off by guardrails. Me: Wait one second now, why wasn’t this mentioned?! Also me: If I just lean a wee bit closer, it will almost be as if I got up close and personal with this waterfall 😩...or I’ll go over the edge. At the end of the day you never truly know what you’ll get when you go trekking, but just like life it’s about the journey not necessarily the destination. So many fond memories made this day. 📷: @abnormal_fitness
