My First Day in Junior High....
The first day of junior high my over-protective mom insisted on driving me to school. Some kids saw a pale-skinned woman with sleek jet black hair swept up into a bun drop, driving her white Mercedes, drop me off; They started calling me “Oreo” and “Wanna be”. My saving grace was Choir and Drama. There it was okay to be different. “Different” was actually a good thing.
After graduating from Howard University, I found myself at the Imperial Theater singing "On My Own" in the Broadway Company of Les Miserable. A few years later, I won a NAACP Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Musical, for the role of Adelaide in Guys and Dolls Broadway National Tour.
I am Alexandra Foucard. Today, I carry my imagination and creativity into everything I am: spouse, mother, motivational speaker, writer, singer, actor and vegan. My experiences continue to enrich my life and have given me great inspiration to share with you.
