Taraji P. Henson: “It’s Supposed To Be Over For Me…But Here I Am!”
… infectious cackle before changing to a serious tone. “Now, have they put all the zeroes on my check that I deserve?” she asked, noting that ever since Tyler Perry flew her to a meeting on his private jet, she’s been hankering for one of her own. “That’s the question, but not even for me because I don’t write the checks. I just keep working hard, knowing it will come.”
“Most successful young people don’t look inside and then plan a life. They look outside and find a problem, which summons their life.” Henson’s “problem” found her. The bravery she showed to her unborn child is an inspiration within itself. The success she earned despite her major setback, is now known as a legacy. Henson’s pregnancy could be considered to be the abyss of her life. This situation had potential to take her all the way back to her starting point in her home in D.C. Instead, Henson found the determination, power, and capability within herself and conquered her own world, while creating a new world for someone else.
