“Disney’s Beauty and the Beast will forever hold a special place in my heart because of how honored I am to be playing the role of Belle as a young woman of color. This show is a reminder to simply be yourself no matter how others may view you. Through Belle, people can find a piece of themselves. Whether that be the times when you’re questioning your purpose in life or your place in this world. Remain true to yourself and know that you have purpose and meaning in this life, the same way as Belle. I hope this show brings you and your family joy this holiday season.”
