Ashley Madekwe

"Ashley has been my best friend since '97. Back then, we worked in McDonalds and dreamed/planned big. This picture was taken on the way to a charity function hosted by Russell Simmons in 2010. We ended up sitting at the head table with Russell along side Michelle from Destiny's Child. Fancy parties and gatherings do not equal success, but I love this picture, because for me it depicts how far we've come."
