We had the good fortune of connecting with Brittany Raquelle and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brittany, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk has been a major key in my career development, In order for me to get where I want to be in my career I had to and will continue to take risks. I’m not afraid to step out of my comfort zone and go against the norm to achieve success. Risk has helped me gain experience and brought new ideas and opportunities to light that I probably would have never thought of if I didn’t take specific risks.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?

I have many different skills and thoughts that put me in a creative space, one is screenwriting, I learned screenwriting from the set of the tv show titled “Star” I was Ryan Destiny stand in for the show and I would read the sides and would analyze it and that’s how I became interested in screenwriting, I started taking classes with Lamont Ferrell who is an awesome teacher by the way; I started writing more especially while on lockdown early on in the pandemic but I stayed focused on the craft and working with people who have the same interests as me and now we are bringing our ideas to life.

I been interested in acting since I was kid, I was very shy but I definitely grew out of that and I started doing background work for about six months in Atlanta to get myself on set and then I was picked to be Ryan Destiny stand in on Star and I did that basically for the duration of the show, I enjoyed being on that set, the cast and crew were awesome; Once the show ended I decided to no longer do stand in work because that was a comfort zone for me, I started submitting myself for independent features and auditioning more, I eventually met my awesome manager Jill Mansfield, she is the best and has been guiding me along the way, she is a great person overall, big shout out to her.

The road and path I chose is not easy but it’s worth it in the end when all the hard work, sleepless nights and lost time starts to pay off, some of the lessons I learned along the way is to keep my successes to myself and let my work speak for itself and to simply don’t be afraid and take risk, I only have one life so I’m a do what I want while I’m here.

I want the world to know I am coming so get ready and get used to seeing this face.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’m from Atlanta and I love food so I would take my friend to some of my favorite spots to eat in Atlanta like Slutty Vegan, their vegan burgers are awesome, I love bar taco in Iman Park, Cafe Bourbon Street has some great NOLA food as well but if they want something sweet like a milkshake The Yard Milkshake Bar Atlanta on Marietta street is on point. Now for the fun side of things I like to ride scooters and bikes on the beltline, I would go four wheeling, I enjoy going to concerts and  comedy shows.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my shout out to my family to include my daughter Amiyah, parents, siblings and last but not least my nieces and nephews without them I don’t where I would be, they all motivate me in their own little way, they have supported all my ventures, always have my back and give great advice and suggestions on what I could do better or how I can change things up, I appreciate them more than they could ever imagine.
