  7. I met Yvette Nicole Brown last night!!! She is an alumn of my university and without a doubt one of my absolute favorite speakers I've ever heard. Definitely a role model. She inspired me with everything she said. Yvette has been in many tv shows and movies. Other than Community and DRAKE AND JOSH, she has also been "Goldie Locksley" on the Good Morning Storybrooke feature on the second season #onceuponatime DVD AND the voice of the show's Ursula!!! The cherry ontop of an amazing evening is that she thought I look like the show's Evil Queen(Lana Parrilla) and brought it up several times in the night and then on her tweet to me. I melted. Thank you Yvette for everything last night(and also the really honoring compliment). #yvettenicolebrown #akron #community #drakeandjosh #ursula #onceuponatime #lanaparrilla #evilqueen #inspiring
