Meeting Matthew a. Cherry, Creator of Hair Love and Illustrator Vashti Harrison

I was so inspired and blessed to meet Oscar-Winning Director Matthew A. Cherry and fellow Illustrator, Vashti Harrison. I homeschooled Little Nantayi and Solomon Jr, for 6 years, and during that time I had to learn how to do our daughter’s hair. The Hair Love animated short film hit home for me. So yesterday I took mukyala Jagwe, on a date for a screening of Hair Love. It was a blessed evening, and we heard the journey of what it takes to pursue a storytelling dream. We left super encouraged to continue working hard on The Adventures of Nkoza and Nankya and hope to inspire our fellow African and Ugandan storytellers. Friends, never give up on your dreams and dare to Dream Big!! ~ ~
