I had opportunity to be apart the Apple Carnegie library’s #Storymakerfestival commercial. I've never been in front the camera before talking about my work or what it means to be in DC creative. I remember walking into the building super excited and having tons of energy….The only issue was my mouth and my mind did not operate on the same frequency lol. The lights turned on and my throat went dry. I found myself stuttering over my words and drawing blanks. I left feeling unprepared but I ended up coming back again for second day to get some pick up shots and there was some improvement. Thank God for second chances. Moments like that remind me of how serious I can be at times. “ Nah ma Sarwu” which translates to “ It will be ok Sarwu ( pronounced SAA-WOO, my african name).
