“Go big or go home”… a stage motto which Andrea Lewis picked up on and took quite literally. Andrea Lewis, as many of you may know from the hit tv series “Degrassi: The Next Generation”, has blessed the pages of Making It In High Heels with a unique story which illustrates a successful young woman in the entertainment industry. Through written word, Andrea oozes of confidence, determination, dedication, and success.
As a young girl, Andrea describes how important family support was to her, and retells her emergence into the entertainment industry as a toddler. Her younger years were always surrounded by her fathers love of music, and her mothers passion for fashion and glamor. She was in her element when in front of the cameras, and found her lifelong dream at a very young age.
As Andrea hit the teen years, she realized just how tough the entertainment industry was, and knew it was not going to be easy, and chose then to continue the path with even more dedication and determination.
~ The entertainment industry is tough and requires very thick skin, particularly for a black girl. Nothing that I have accomplished has come to me easily. I still have to prove myself constantly and fight for parts more challenging the neighbor, the best friend or the stereotypical “black girl”. This is the card I’ve been dealt however, and God doesn’t give you anything you can’t handle.~
Andrea has dealt with her share of hard times including the divorce of her parents, and struggling to make ends meet, but says that these issues have only provided more determination for success! Now that is inspiration!!!!!
