For so many years, I didn’t have the opportunity to bring my dream to life, so luckily, Heritage bank came on board and partnered with us this year and I believed this is a fantastic opportunity to bring to life that this long-life fantasy and with the assistance of my business partner and director, we chose to put a monologue out of our new film, La Femme Anjola, that whoever does win will have an opportunity to feature in our next job aside winning a prize. It was difficult because we had several entrances and I’ll tell you that we have plenty of talents in this state but at the end of the day Jasmine won”
