In this episode of Six Weeks to Fitness, I am joined by Imani Hakim, best known for her role as Tonya Rock, kid sister to Chris Rock on the very popular sitcom “Everybody Hates Chris”. On March 10, 2017, Imani will star in the Netflix original Movie “Burning Sands” alongside actress Alfre Woodard. Although most people decide what career path they want to take after they graduate from high school, Imani Hakim already had developed a strong passion for acting by the tender age of seven and by age 11 she landed her first acting role in Everybody Hates Chris. During the interview, Imani will discuss how her persistence along with her father’s support and belief in her abilities, helped her land her first role. She will also discuss in detail her next movie, Burning Sands, which will give you a raw, voyeuristic journey of fraternity pledging through the eyes of one favored pledgee (Trevor Jackson), who is torn between honoring a code of silence or standing up against the intensifying violence of underground hazing. Imani will also discuss what life is like being a young actress in Hollywood auditioning for film and TV roles. Imani believes that there is no substitute for confidence, believing in yourself and getting paid to do what you love to do. Imani will also discuss her exercise routine and the important role nutrition plays in her life.
