Living in New York, you get to meet so many talented people. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a very talented young lady. Chicago-born Nihara Nichelle is currently blazing a trail in the New York acting and film scene. The actor/singer/writer has created her own web series, “Velma Doesn’t Get it” and is leaving her imprint in the comedic universe.

She is currently running an IndieGoGo campaign to help fund her series. We all know how difficult it can be to break into the film industry as a woman of African descent, especially into the comedy world, without having to play condescending and stereotypical roles. I’m asking everyone to head over to her IndieGoGo page and support her. This sista is doing big things. Let’s help get her out there.

By the way, meet Velma:
