When Mo’Nique’s name was called for best supporting actress at the Academy Awards I literally got chills and felt the hairs on my arms stand up.
Mo’Nique has paid her dues in the entertainment industry. She has seen some ups and I’m sure she’s seen some downs. I’m sure along the road someone has told her she’s too fat. Too black. Too loud. But what I appreciate about people like Mo’Nique and others who attain a high level of success is their resilience and unwavering determination to see their dreams through to fruition. Someone I respect once told me to make my haters my motivators.
