Rising Stars: Meet Kyerrah Robinson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kyerrah Robinson.

Hi Kyerrah, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
At a very young age, I have always questioned what my purpose was and how to find it. I was always involved in the arts in some way. From being on the praise dance team in the church to being on the step team and singing in the choir in grade school, I have always had a passion for all things performing and creative.

When I was in my junior year of high school, I decided to audition for the school’s play. I ended up landing one of the lead roles and I was super excited about the opportunity. I remember the very first time we rehearsed, my theatre teacher was shocked that I knew most of my lines already.

I was dedicated and passionate about doing my best at my craft. That year, at the school’s award show for arts and electives, I earned the very first “Best Actress” award for my role in Bang Bang, You’re Dead as Jessie. Since then, I’ve gone on to do more local plays in the Columbia and Savannah area.

I even earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual and Performing Arts: Theatre Concentration with a minor in Mass Communications. Amongst other creative outlets, I want to explore, my dream is to become a professional actress.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
No, it has not been a smooth road at all, but that’s life. Some struggles I have had along the way are finding or creating my own opportunities, and support, and balancing post-graduation “adulting” with continuing to pursue my dreams.

I am one of those people who feels like other cities are good to go to when you need quick and excessive opportunity (and there’s nothing wrong with that), but great things can happen right here in South Carolina too. If we just band together, put each other on and pull each other up we can build up a film, arts, and entertainment community and all kinds of opportunities right here where we come from.

I am also still adjusting to post-graduation life. Sometimes I get discouraged sometimes when I think about how things didn’t happen the way I had planned. But I remember that famous saying “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans” and I had to learn that everything happens for a reason and God’s plan is bigger and better than anything you can come up with.

You just have to keep trusting, keep having faith, and most importantly keep going! I believe that with hard work, faith, and patience, any dream worth having is worth fighting for!

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
Although I have worn many hats, the one I am most known for is being an actress. That is my passion. I am also a director, creative director, and screenwriter. a visionary and a dreamer. I feel what sets me apart from others is that you can not box me in. I have seen people try and they get disappointed.

I am multifaceted with different dimensions that I want to fully explore. I do not wish to just be one thing, have one career, etc. I simply just want to be me and that is my greatest asset! I pride myself on being a student in life. I am always excited to learn and eager to grow.

When I am inspired, my mind and imagination take over me and create brilliant ideas that can be developed and turned into different projects. I am always wanting better, trying to figure out different ways to tell a story. I am an empath, I have a true love for people, for humanity, and I want to constantly express that love through my art form.

Although I talked mostly about my love for acting and the arts, that is not all that I do. I am also a model, an entrepreneur, a host, and an event promoter. I own an online boutique called Nubia’s Kloset that specializes in women’s fashions and accessories.

I also partner with local photographers and designers to help fulfill their visions through runway and commercial modeling. Along with hosting and promoting different events around the area.

What do you think about luck?
Honestly, luck has not played a role in my life at all because I do not believe in luck.

I believe in hard work, I believe in my faith, and I believe in favor. I feel that we are all put here with a purpose and as long as you are walking in that, you really don’t need luck.
