A surgeon doesn’t just go into surgery without years of education under their belt. An actor should be educated on the classics, on the history of acting, on techniques, etc. Learn the craft and be a master at the trade. I believe that’s the key to longevity. Thanks again to @thehustlersguild for having me share my experiences last week! Happy Friday y’all!
When life gives you bananas....just dance! Yea I made that phrase up! May not make sense but hey, it does to me! Hope you find a moment to move your hips today! 📸 @jcarteresq

Be radiant. Operate from a place of love...unconditional love. Be forgiving. Have a free mind. And most importantly, enjoy life! Happy weekend y’all! Much Love - Ciera 📸@aminatphotography #mylifemotto
Salute to all of the women who have paved the way for us all. Most importantly the lineage of brave, fierce and bold women in my family who were wise beyond their years, endured and were so strong that they made mountains move. The Payton Women, the Diaz Women, the Ramon Women and the Spencer Women. I feel and see your spirt daily as I walk this journey. You give me grace when I make mistakes, uplift me when I’m down, and take me higher when I’m flying high! Oh to be a woman! #internationalwomensday ♥️♥️♥️

Happy birthday to my little brother @jalenpayton I love you more than you know, even though you can be moody as hell sometimes 😂😂. My advice to you, trust your gut, be patient in life, do things because you want to not because someone says or because it’s cool at the moment, stay grateful and keep God first. Can’t believe it’s been 18 years since you entered this world! Wow time flies too fast! Love you!
Coming at you like.... New project on the way!

Today as I was leaving the gym, listening to the radio, this news was breaking. See normally, I’d shake my head, change the channel and try not to take on the emotions surrounding these events. However, today, this one, is different. Aside from being an actor, I am a teacher. And this is a school I teach at. My heart dropped. I still don’t know if any of my students were directly involved. I have no profound words at this time. Just sheer shock. I was a little shaky going into my other class at a different school today, now seeing how close this all is. I can’t hop on the gun control/reform soapbox right now, because it’ll continue to fall on deaf ears. And I’m not really sure if that’s the issue in this case. All I can say is that, parents, family members, and teachers just please love and support our young people. They need it the most during these times. #peace #love
