I am the founder of my own company, Triibe Productions, where I am writing and producing films, and distributing social commentary that reflects the diversity and power in our culture. After high school, I would like to attend USC School of Cinematic Arts and major in Film and Television Production. My ultimate goal is to one day establish a major production studio where myself and other artists will have full control of the content we create and distribute. Through this, I hope to be an example of creating your own business to gain artistic freedom.

Norfolk, VA
On February 9th, 2001, I was born to my mother, Jenelle Williams. Ever since I took my first breath in this world, I've had albinism. My albinism has considerably affected my sight in a negative way, making it extremely hard for me to see the world in the way someone with 20/20 vision would. Despite my lack of vision, I've seen a considerable split in the black community which has saddened me greatly. It has been this sadness that spurred my absolute drive to reaching greatness to remedy the problem within the black community. My dream is to reach a position of power to eradicate the issue, in lesser words, I want- no will- become the future president of the United States.
