Happy Mother’s Day to all the good & wonderful mamas out there, especially @missmeganle @jennifersunbell @lovenicolelemoine and @muramirin. Additionally, growing up, I essentially had 3 other “moms” that each gave me a second home and impacted my life in a strong way. Special mention: @deana.ng you‘re a sister, so I’m not counting you as one of my “moms” even though you mom’d me pretty hard (rightly so, still scared to drink milk to this day). Your love and warmth is not quantifiable. You taught me manners and you make good cake. Erica (upper right) literally gave me a second home to stay at whenever I needed growing up and a tremendous amount of guidance. She impacted how I view things and taught me gratitude. Cinda (bottom left) for whatever reason took a chance with me and gave me my first actual work in casting. She taught me punctuality (though I’m still working on this one. ha!). She welcomed me with open arms and provided a space that I could just come, hang out and learn. I know for sure, I’m just one of MANY that look to her for that warm hug and smile. Ada (bottom right) took charge of the martial arts studio I trained at and made it feel more like home and a safe space. It became a place I could come to anytime I needed. During that time, I had countless invaluable conversations with Ada that actually served to make me a much more open minded individual than I might otherwise have been. And of course, @joycesantosalba my actual mom. She gave birth to me. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY. Just kidding. I feel like anything I could expand on with my ACTUAL Mom would feel saccharine and cliché and potentially embarrass her, so I’ll leave it at, I love you Mom and thank you for the PlayStation2.
