In learning to truly own and celebrate all my achievements during this year, I take the time to say Thank You for the honour of being recognized for something I don’t just do, but WHO I am! Arts and Entertainment is my life! Such an awesome gift in my Birthday Month but also just a moment to look back at 17 years of pushing, working, hustling, grinding, sacrificing, crying, sweating, struggling, giving… While I wish that those before me were here physically with me today, I know that each one of them is by my side making all of this possible and every bit of challenge and test worth it! Thank you M&G again for the nod. Mama I made it!!! Here’s to the FUTURE 🎉🥂 #MG200Young Class of 2020 for Arts and Entertainment
