The heart of the matter...
Joelle is a Latina creative who is looking to make her mark on this industry by being that same representation America Ferrera was to her when I first saw 'Real Women Have Curves'.
Her ultimate goals are collaborate with others around the world and make music and films that entertain and inspire, to be on television shows that people look forward to viewing the next episode, and to grace the stage to sing and tell stories that reach into the audience's hearts and leave them changed for the better.
