For me, β€œI am what I make up” means that I control who I want to be. I’m thrilled to be a part of a powerful film from such an iconic brand, with a dynamic group of women. Follow @COVERGIRL for more updates!

I remember being an awkward black girl in high school, reading the pages of my favorite magazines, casually flipping through @COVERGIRL ads, singing their slogan in my head. Never EVER in my life did I imagine I'd be one. I am SO honored and SO excited for what’s to come. Visit @COVERGIRL to learn more #COVERGIRLMADE


Tonight's #InsecureHBO season 2 FINALE was written by me and directed by my work wife and #DirectorBae, @msmelina. What are your finale predictions?

Loved working with such a talented and funny group of people. What did you guys think of last night's episode?

Older black woman dropped this off to me on her way out. Always appreciative! ☺️


This week's #InsecureHBO episode is directed by my partner in show, @the_a_prentice. It wasn't enough stress for him to run our writers room and tv show behind the scenes... nah... this dapper beast of a man decided to make his directorial debut and ended up producing one of our funniest episodes to date. You did that, Prentice! Can't wait for you guys to see it!
