Bio: Lawanda L. Young is a graduate of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale with a BA in theater performing arts. She’s a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated and and also a proud member of the Screen Actors Guild. She has lived in Los Angeles and in New York to plant seeds and work on her craft. Her resume includes theater, film and commercials. While trying to figure out what’s next, she has taken the initiative to produce her own live show, “That’s Just Lawanda”on Facebook on Saturday Night. “That’s Just Lawanda” came about when her friend decided to write a script because they thought her life was just too funny and being all over the place. The idea was to pass the script down to someone who knew someone opening up their own production company. That didn’t happen, so she figured she would start putting the and idea of the show out onto the universe. The concept of the show is connecting with Lawanda as she finds her way back to her love which is acting. She’s doing multiple monologues and other things and involving her audience by asking for feedback so far so good. You can check “That’s Just Lawanda” Live on Saturday Nights at 8pm Central.
