Today we’d like to introduce you to Amber Glenn.
Amber, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I grew up with my grandmother, I had a rough childhood growing up. Watching her struggle to make ends meet, lead me to be a dreamer. I would constantly daydream about changing our lives. I began to write stories and started a diary. I fell in love with writing and that became my passion. I moved to LA to follow my dreams. When I got pregnant in 2016, a lot of people told me not to have the baby. My career will never happen with a baby. I knew I could do both! My son @kendallnealjr is a model/actor with Zuri Model & Talent. I manage him. I knew God had a plan, I just needed to remain faithful.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I am a writer, director, and a producer. I opened my own production company, that was always a huge dream of mine; to own a business. I wanted to own a production company to create the narrative for my stories. I also do a lot of charity of work, so I wanted a company to give back to underprivileged youth. I love writing to tell people’s truth. I would want people to realize my work is my passion, I want to use my platform to give other people hope. I know what it’s like to not have a positive role model, I want to give the youth someone to look up to.
What do you know now that you wished you had learned earlier?
I would say don’t stop! When you’re climbing a mountain, all you can do is keep going to get to the top. You have to be persistent and keep going, then you will eventually get there.
I wish I learned how to be happy at the moment sooner, I was always stressed about the next step. You have to enjoy the ride and always have gratitude for the process.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
