I have always been a fan of Taraji P Henson and her work. I am glad to see her getting the recognition and success that I think she deserves. She’s been hustling and putting in the work. She highlights the tough background that she came from being born and raised in Washington, DC. Just miles from where I grew up in Maryland, but different worlds away. I admire her integrity and perspective on making it in her field. The odds were stacked against her for sure but look at her now. I love reading memoirs because they are a good reminder that things never come easy…you have to work for it.
