WAW Crush Wednesday Celebrates, Tiffany Haddish
Happy Wednesday my beautiful Worthy Village! I’m feeling good today! How about y’all? Well, I’m pretty excited about this week’s crush because it is long overdue. When I had the chance to research on her story, I was eager to express my support for this woman and why she is so deserving of everything positive in her future. This week’s #WAWCW is the hilarious Tiffany Haddish. Let’s talk about this woman who thought she was going to be a statistic is now making a name for herself in comedy!
Born in Los Angeles, she had to experience most of her childhood without her biological father. She had to raise herself along with her four half-siblings when her mother was in a bad car accident that forced her to learn how to walk and talk again. Tiffany had to teach her everything she had taught her up to that point. Due to the degree of her mother’s mental illness and her sudden abusive behavior, at the age of 13, she with her siblings were all put into the foster care system. Unfortunately, she had to endure bullying in the home she was placed in but she cracked jokes to avoid beat downs some days. Eventually, her grandmother adopted.
Tiffany Haddish had slid her way through the school system because she never had the chance to learn how to “actually’ read. In an interview, she said she liked to call her way through school was “professional cheating”. Growing up, it wasn’t until her social worker put her in comedy camp that she gained her confidence with genuine self and comedy.
The reason I feel like Tiffany is well-deserving is because she didn’t let her past of foster care, abuse, and homelessness stop her from creating her future. Of course, she started out with featured appearances on television shows “Pimp My Ride” and “That’s So Raven” and also reoccurring roles in Real Husbands of Hollywood. America caught her drift in the 2017 knee-slapping film “Girls Trip” as she had a leading role in a college friend reunion with actresses Jada Pinkett-Smith, Regina Hall, and Queen Latifah. If you haven’t seen the film, you might want to! She later starred in 2018 films “Night School” and “Nobody’s Fool.”
Tiffany has received recognition like Best Actress in the 2018 BET Awards and nominated in the Grammys for her memoir “The Last Black Unicorn.” During the success in movies, she was priveledged to be the first African-American that hosted Saturday Night Live, hosted the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards, and has come to be brand ambassador for Groupon.
Tiffany Haddish has overcome many different obstacles over the course of her life. As Worthy Villagers, it’s our job to support and motivate women to be better than their past. Let’s welcome “The Next Big Thing” Tiffany Haddish into our Worthy Village as she continues to make history and keep her head lifted!
