Meet DeAndra Scott of DeAndra Scott The Entertainer
I can defiantly say my current path as not always been my the path. I’ve always known I wanted to be an entertainer from as long as I can remember. I can sit & think of my childhood consisting of church programs, school talent shows & community plays! My mother also did her very best to expose me to the right people but in some way it always fell through. Even after having my oldest daughter my senior year in high school I knew one day I would still pursue my entertainment career but with a baby I went straight to work at Subway & into CNA school when I graduated. Since graduating in 2005, I met my husband summer of 05’, have three beautiful girls & an awesome career in healthcare. November of 2017 changed my life forever. I was with a great healthcare company in an awesome position & I went on a typical lunch break & found myself dropping in the building elevator starting on the 11th floor & opening my eyes on the 2nd floor. That’s right I had just endured the scariest moment of my life, something I thought I would never go through an Elevator Accident. To God be the glory, I walked off the elevator without a scratch in the physical. Unfortunately mentally has been a battle still to this day but each day is better & truly a blessing. Something happened in that moment. Almost like I had woken up from a dream & I saw the world in a refreshing new light. I wanted to Live, Act, Sing & be Alive. I knew this was my moment to finally pursue my dreams cause I was just reminded my life could be over at any moment. I remembered the legacy I dreamed of leaving for my children & family. I remember to pure joy I felt on stage, just like home. So I started my acting journey. Aug of 2018, I landed a role as a Hollywood choir member in the film Screwed Up Christmas directed by Ms. Cat of Ms. Cat T.V.
I’m so excited to see where my acting journey takes me. Walking into my second year of acting I feel brand new. I literally know I have finally started walking in my purpose & I feel Liberated. Just know no matter what happens in life don’t forget who you are & what you want to accomplish in this life. Go for it. Live in Truth & Purpose!
The toughest struggle was myself. I found myself in self-doubt, shame & pity. I allowed the false perception of this world make me feel low for being a teen mom, not obtaining my degree yet & many other areas where I mentally stopped myself from progressing until I took the blinders off. I learned you have to have patience & know your journey is unique & special just like us all. I learned that the thing’s I was blessed with & had accomplished people wanted. I’m so very blessed. I try take into consideration that the grass is literally not greener on the other side. Life is truly how you make it. Listen to your inner voice to guide you while you strive though to your accomplishments. In those moments of struggle remember Who you are & What your made of. A winner not only wins & accomplish their goal. A winner also never gives up.

The definition of success to me is pure soul happiness. When I say pure soul happiness it can be defined in so many ways through many different careers & nationalities of any person. I believe success is the person who can wake up in full gratitude and throughout their meaningful day still spread love, joy & kindness to all they come in contact with. Success is looking outside of ones self and being able to identify the wants and needs of the people, community and environment we spend our daily activities in & around. Although materialistic success is always rewarding to me it’s a small factor in determining ones success. Having someone to love and to be love unconditionally is a rare yet needed success in ones life. True success is found within and what’s on the inside will show on the outside!
