a special needs child, suffering from blindness.
Her Instagram account showed more pictures of the young man turns 21 this year.
Upon doing further research, her brother also happens to be blind.
But nothing is stopping the actress from achieving her dreams or enjoying her life. Going through her social media, Monica shares her acting jobs along with the joys of raising her incredible son.
“With The Best Man Holiday now on [all platforms], I’d love people to share it with a loved one and open the conversation about preventative health care,” says Monica. “I’d love for it to also spark conversations about forgiveness.”
The seasoned actress also shares her passion for self-love, no matter how you look or ailment.
“Beauty is how I feel about myself. If someone is looking at me, and I’m not what their normal idea of beauty is, they see me and they feel my energy saying to them ‘I’m gorgeous. I’m beautiful,'” explains Calhoun.
“When you approach that inner beauty feeling, it’s hard for someone to not deem you as beautiful. If you don’t have on the latest Tom Ford… or if you went to the store and have on the sweater that costs only $9.99, if you exude that beauty within, you are it. Never mind what someone else’s initial reaction is. It’s an inner beauty feeling that Black women have. It’s our aura.”
“What’s important about Black women is embracing all different aspects of beauty and what beauty is. No matter what kind of hair or style you may have, exude beauty from the inside so that you can manifest it on the outside.”
