In Honor of Black History Month: Halle Berry
post by Ashli Prescott
Halle Berry (Born Maria Halle Berry, 1966-Present)
Actress and (former) Fashion model
Miss Halle Berry is the very essence of glamorous Hollywood. Once a fashion model placing highly in beauty contests (including runner up for Miss USA and 6th for the Miss World in 1986), she now acts in many films and is recognized by the public around the world. Her beauty and kind nature make her a rare delight in the entertainment industry and she has always been able to stay grounded as a mom of 2 and all-around human being. She was awarded an Academy Award for her role in the movie "Monster's Ball" (2002) which made her the first (and only-to this day) actress of African-American descent to win an Oscar for a leading role. Halle is currently one of the wealthiest (and highest paid) actresses in Hollywood and is also a spokesmodel for cosmetics brand Revlon.
"If you set out to do something and you give it your all and it doesn't work out, be willing to modify your goal slightly. Have the ability to look in another direction. A small shift could guide you to the real purposes of your life." - Halle Berry
