Hi, I’m Lady Grace. I’m a writer based in Los Angeles. I grew up in San Francisco but I was artistically raised in Chicago where I co-directed an ongoing show with the Drinking & Writing Theater. My work tackles challenging topics through humor. I look forward to making you laugh someday.
Kenya Queen recently moved out to LA from Houston, TX after receiving her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and French from the University of North Texas. Although she doesn’t have professional experience as a writer, by combining her love for prose and her career in providing closed captions broadcasted all over the world — she was inspired to pursue the path of a creative artist. She has always been compelled to tell stories with her unique voice in a variety of mediums, thus obtaining a masters degree in the fine arts would be a perfect platform. Being able to collaborate with people from all over the world drives her passion for this industry and she believes it will have a great influence on her work in the future.
Currently, she is Secretary for the MFA Production Studio club on campus and works various positions at the school library. She has served as dramaturg on two school productions: Being an American and We, the Invisibles.
I was born and raised in Hayward, CA. As an MFA student with an emphasis in writing, I look to create pieces that catalyze discussions on societal failures. I try to combine the creative and critical mind so that the works produced challenge the viewer to question the subject matter and the perspective in which it’s presented. My focus is on digital media and specifically, 3D animation. I’m currently producing a short series that highlights the trials and tribulations of being a first-generation Punjabi teenager. I am also training to be a teaching assistant for Introduction to Screenwriting. Along with school, I host a weekly radio show on Radio Mirchi (AM 1310), a Punjabi radio station, where I discuss American politics and keep the Punjabi community informed about the latest political happenings in America. In my free time, I work with various charter schools to create lesson plans that promote creative interests.
