Hey guys! Just dropping by to update you on what's been going on since my last post. Last week, I worked a few shows and had an audition for a predominantly all black stage play! Let's hope I get it! You can catch me in a new show called "So Random" a spin off of "Sonny With a Chance" and another new show called "Ant Farm." Both should premiere this summer! Next month I will be SAG eligible so I am gearing up for that, I want to make sure I find the RIGHT agent this time. I am also still pursuing a manager as well. As for my vocal lessons, they are coming along just great, I definitely can feel and hear the difference. Right now the plan is to continue to hone my skills and looking for the right people to represent me. At the end of this year, I definitely expect some big changes so continue to pray for me! Hope you all are having a blessed and productive day! XOXO Keila

That Poignant MOMENT in Your Life

Hey guys, I have some incredible things to share with you all which I hope you can find beneficial and inspiring. A few months ago I auditioned for an up and coming tv show called "Wassup En La" and I was able to score a callback. Yesterday, I was caught off guard with an email stating I made the SECOND round of callbacks, it is narrowed down to three, including me!! That same day I bumped into a friend I'd worked with on a previous set. He referred me to his manager who I contacted and I feel really good about him, so we shall see what happens.

These past two weeks have been so inspiring to me as a person, and my faith in GOD. Crucial to the life making decisions in my personal and business affairs. I will explain this significant journey I have experienced. I've been on a quest to find a vocal coach and I finally found one! We clicked and she seen something in me that compelled her to help me. Not only is she a wonderful, God-fearing woman but an AMAZING vocal coach. I've already had my third session and can already feel and hear a difference. She is also in the midst of rebuilding her hometown Flint, Michigan. Giving hope to the children, families and the city itself. This re-ignited my passion of creating my non-profit organization for under privileged children in urban areas. A good friend of mine, Jordan Swain, has a non-profit organization with the same mission I want to put out. I feel as though God is telling me to stop putting it on the backburner and DO IT! So, with that said I will be brainstorming my ideal NPO. Now, that brings me to an incredible individual that I was introduced to Byron Nelson, Independent Representative of ACN . This man was so incredibly bright with a crystal clear vision, and a strong faith in God. He has achieved mega success personally and financially. He inspired me to start looking at things in a business perspective as far as my goals and anything in my life that I need to accomplish. I truly believe it was purposefully meant for me to encounter these two individuals right now in this particular point in my life. While I am a work in progress, I feel confident of a relationship with the two. They say the top five people you have in your circle is a mirror of you. That definitely made me ponder about myself as it should for you. I felt compelled to share this amazing experience with you all. Where this journey takes me is exciting and scary but I believe things take a turn for the BEST! XoXo Keila

UPDATE: I am no longer seeing the vocal coach and I have put my NPO on hold for now. When I am able to receive the right resources and time the NPO will come to life. No doubt about it.
