I stood on the stairway of my home, in the shadows of their whispers; listening to the influences of bad association. They were discussing/planning their survival strategies. I didn't like what I heard. I knew I had to do something and soon. That night I prayed. As a single mom, I thought staying close to my children would encourage them to choose a more productive lifestyle. I was wrong. No matter how hard I tried, outside influences seem to have a stronger and more intriguing grip. But I refused to give up without a fight. That's when I decided to tell them about my past, my journey on the road of survival. Yes, I told them--almost everything. They listened, but didn't believe. To them I was a mother on a pedestal; a loving mom that made cupcakes for the school sale and went to almost every PTA meeting. Still, I was the same mom journeying on dangerous roads to survive. That's when I realized that I, they, needed a visual TACT Do What You Gotta Do, When You Gotta Do It.

Nya Terry remembers being scolded as a child by a caring neighbor, and seconds later the neighbor said, "It takes a village to raise a child." Then she gave her that look and added, "You gonna thank me some day." The neighbor was right. Terry has received sixteen trophies and nominations from beauty contests, fashion designing, jazz dancing, acting, and runway modeling. She was nominated for my commercial on Bakers' Keyboard Lounge for the International Television and Video Awards, or Best New-Person in video production. That same year she received an Outstanding Achievement Award from Comcast as a programmer, where she was a cameraperson and floor director for the show Homework Hotline. Her latest award was the Journey to Success Award from the city of Detroit.
