Radio One of Raleigh presents Women’s Empowerment 2017. Women’s Empowerment & Networking Expo was created in 1995 in honor of Women’s History Month. This event was formed with the purpose of inspiring, encouraging and educating. Throughout this expo style event workshops, seminars and lectures are conducted that focus on physical, mental, spiritual, financial and emotional health. The goal of this entire event is to motivate, inspire and rejuvenate all who are in attendance.

Since then, she has diversified her portfolio by securing roles in projects such as; "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Think Like a Man," "Person of Interest" and "Hustle and Flow." Her work as Cookie Lyon on Fox’s hit series "Empire" has earned her a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Series Drama.
