This year has been so good to me.
So elated that this past summer I took on the lead role of ANGEL in my first feature film #nightcomeson co written by @jordanaspiro and Angelica Nwandu! The cherry on top of this wonderful year is that we are going to #sundancefilmfestival . So thankful to Jordana, Angelica and #superlativefilms for having me! Shout out to @nataliekpaul for that day she came to help me with my 3rd callback adjustments

1)How is it that I RANDOMLY end this amazing SMILE inducing weekend with a HOV concert last night??? RANDOMLY!!!
2)In what world could this have been so aligned?
3)How is it that this was my first concert EVER! And for Jay Z? In honor of an album (so personal to him) that I, not only got to be apart of, but got to represent a person so important to him. His mom 🤭
4)So I gifted this hat and jacket to myself to always remember what this week has meant to me.
5) I am indeed so brooklyn. There is no question about it.
6)Last night he talked about the power of manifestation and at that moment I wished he knew I was there because like him, I am a living testament of speaking your dreams into existence and I won’t stop now..
And next time I know to manifest floor seats and a VIP pass lol
Until next... I smile.

Words have escaped me now... but I will try.... There’s so many reasons why I am humbled by this experience but mostly because I know that it took so much courage and trust to share your story and even more to trust other people to tell it with care and kindness... how admirable...
I was introduced to you as a younger you and this was the embrace that came with that.
In my heart I dream to use my instrument, my heart and my craft to help uplift people who have had to fight for that right to be uplifted and to stand in their light. You did all the work... im so glad I got to support . #brooklynallday
Great honor to embody this story. To be a vessel in an ocean of so many who no longer want to live in the shadows!
NEVER did I dream I’d be young Gloria Carter on screen! Wow GOD is real and so good!
“Eternally grateful to jay z” - in my #jcole voice for allowing me to represent his mom in a story so important and personal. Is there a greater honor than protraying Hov’s moma, especially as a Brooklyn baby (born and raised)??? Thank you to the sweet Gloria Carter who welcomed me with open arms the second we met! Such a brave and kind woman. Thank you @rocnation for trusting the extremely talented director @milesjay
And THANK YOU Miles for trusting in me!
So much love to Chaka, Patrick, this amazing cast, crew and the folks in #MARCYHOUSES who opened their homes to us!
It’s her BIRTHDAY
I owe everything I am and how far Ive come to this woman. So honored to make her proud! “Dom you should try acting... I think you could really do it” - my mom told me this when I was 10 and I held fast to her words now my dreams are never ending. That encouragement and support set in my subconscious and changed everything.We didn’t have the money but she always found a way. Taking out loans and debt for PACE so I could stay. Not enough deeds could repay the sacrifices that she’s made so that I could live this life I get to live now. I love my mommy . HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YA!
#fbf to that time when @kathynajimy invited me to perform and I met @chelseahandler and she said I was a cutie and we took this picture. And I did spoken word to a song with @samiatheband for #GloriaSteinem 80th bday and #msmagazine 40th anniversary. and I love Chelsea and does anyone know if Chelsea watches #thedeuce so maybe we can be friends.
My baby girl Billie ... could it be love at first sight? @thejefflima thanks for being my first tv boyfriend For all you #deucebags missing us there’s a couple of familiar faces in #davidsimon @hbo 6 part miniseries #showmeahero! my character comes in ep 3 to the end. Billie to Darlene transformation alright. #transformationtuesday #jefflima #dominiquefishback
