Actress Jasmine Guy and her daughter Imani,10, were on hand to support fellow actress Victoria Rowell at the Rowell Foster Children’s Positive Plan (RFCPP) benefit this past weekend in Atlanta.
Jasmine, who is best known for playing Whitley Gilbert on the sitcom A Different World, recently spoke about why she chose to move to Atlanta with her daughter.
“I wasn’t working enough in L.A., and kept leaving L.A. to work. When my daughter was younger, I had no issue with taking her out of preschool, since I know my colors and my ABCs, and could teach her those. But once she got older – she’s 10 years old now – I had to decide what’s the best lifestyle for her. Atlanta is easier for transportation, money, food, rent, jobs. And I found it more loving, more embracing. Because I grew up here, I knew what will happen for a young person who lives here. I found L.A. to be a more separate city, and I hated that separation. I want her to grow up around all kinds of people (Source).”
