“Moving to Los Angeles was a choice of faith, and God has surpassed my wildest dreams. This moment is bigger than me – this moment is for every single girl who doubts herself or just how big her God is. My life is a testament to that. My life says God is bigger than ginormous! I am grateful, I am humbled, I am honoured to be cast in ‘Coming 2 America’,” she was quoted saying in a statement.
