Need a cover-up tattoo. Turning my pain into art. Writing things you want to read. Thinking of things you can't think of. I really love myself. Don't touch my coffee, just don't. http://www.pinterest.com/michaelssleeve/

In 2012, she made her feature film debut as the lead in Middle of Nowhere, a drama by writer/director Ava DuVernay, also starring David Oyelowo.
