Issa Rae is an American writer, actor, and producer of the famous NBO series Insecure.
She has been nominated for the golden globe award, her series has won the shorty award for the best web series. The beautiful, brilliant and talented actress takes center stage on Essence’s April issue. She’s a stunner, inside and out.
Rae posted the gorgeous cover of herself posing in a stunning white ensemble against a brick wall on her instagram account:
Four years ago, when all I had was a web series and a book, @Essence put me on my first cover with four incredible women I look up to: Ava, Mara, Shonda and Ms. Debbie. It was their “Game Changers” issue and I kept thinking, “I can’t believe they chose me.” That cover meant so much to me because it validated my work on a platform I respected AND it was a nurturing recognition of promise, a promise that I didn’t necessarily see in myself at the time. Four years later — entering the fourth season of my TV show, and shooting my fourth movie in New York — they honored me with this solo cover. Thank you, Essence, for helping me to deliver on that promise you saw years ago, and changing the game for me.
On over coming challenges here’s what Isaa has to say:
“There are definitely challenges. At one end I want to take as many opportunities as I can, on the other hand, I do not want to disappoint myself and other people by not meeting up with deadlines. Trying to find that work/life balance for the past few years has been challenging”
However, rumors are buzzing that “Our Issa” is about to tie the knot with her long-time beau, Louis Diame. We definitely love Issa Rae!!! Let us know why you love Issa on the comment below.
