Writer Statement

Have you ever wondered, how it would feel to save the world? Ok, not
actually “save the world” as we know it; but saving lives in the ‘television
world,’ like the super heroes do? Well, I wondered. Then I did it!
Yep, I was a super hero. I played Tanya, the yellow ranger on Power
Rangers for 75 episodes and a movie (Nakia Burrise). It rocked! Fighting
puddies, winning battles over the forces of darkness, being a role model to
brown skinned kids! It was awesome! Then out of no where the red carpet
was pulled from under me. I was blindsided- bamboozled! Actually it wasn’t
that dramatic. My contract ended and it was time for new rangers!
But, didn’t the exaggerated version seem so much more interesting?
After Power Rangers, I went on to substitute teach, eventually taking over
classrooms because teachers were worn out, underprepared, under
qualified, and literally afraid of their students. This was elementary school,
by the way.…. in South Los Angeles! Need I say more? Luckily (as a
distraction) I had acting jobs and conventions in between wiping noses and
karate chopping students (just kidding, but sometimes I really wanted to).
By 2009, the comic con world became saturated with Power Ranger fans
leading promoters to book Power Ranger guests like me. One convention
became 2, then 10 now I travel the world signing autographs and taking
pictures. The fans are so loving. They come up to my table to tell me that
I’m their ‘third favorite ranger, or how the pink ranger is their favorite; or the
best one ever, “you’re so pretty to be black!’ Whoa, hit and a miss! I’m
living the dream, I tell ya! I couldn’t make this stuff up if I wanted to! At least
I can say as a Power Ranger I did help save the world!
So I thought, “Hey, why not share, my “Life After Saving the World!”
