She Never Lost Sight of Her Dream.
As children, we allow our imaginations to run free from the arrests of worry and fear. We dream about all that we’ll do and become, and we convincingly proclaim it to others. Somewhere, however, on our journey into adulthood, many of us lose hold of that childlike imagination and our once vivid dreams too. But not Melissa Arnette “Missy” Elliott. Since a kid, she would perform for family friends and knew then thatÂ she wanted to be a star. Now 43-years-old, she’s still performing, but for much larger audiences, and is credited among entertainment’s most innovative and groundbreaking artists.
