In the Background of Hidden Figures

I was 12 weeks postpartum when I got the job. Trying to get back to work but still not feeling like myself. I was doing a church scene where I was seated directly behind leading ladies Janelle Monae, Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer. There was an energy flowing throughout the set, a feeling of pride and sisterhood filled the atmosphere. Although I was in the background, I felt valued and I thanked God throughout the very long days of filming for opening the door for me to contribute to such an important film.



Hidden Figures is a true story based on the lives of Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan, women who were brave enough to be brilliant, bold enough to live their dreams and unashamed of the beauty of their blackness!

Again, God placed me right where I needed to be to get the motivation I needed to keep being the woman I am becoming! 





What a wonderful opportunity! Go Gabby!
