    I am very interested in the part of Autumn. I minored in theater at Tennessee State University and stared in several student productions. I’m Autumn in every way I’m sexy, feisty, and smart. I’m very easy to direct and even easier to get along with. I don’t come with a diva attitude, just tell me which camera to look at and give me my lines and I’ll do my job. My email address is mypowers86@gmail.com I would like to send my head shots. You can check me out on youtube reciting my poetry at theoneandonlyladya. I can also be reached at 313 682 1766
