Los Angeles, CA, January 15, 2013 –Hollywood actress Alysia Rogers, best known for her roles in the classic movies Boyz n the Hood and Kid N’ Play’s Class Act, will be visiting students from John Muir Junior High School in Los Angeles, located at 5929 S. Vermont Ave.
Rogers will speak on January 31st, and will be emphasizing the importance of rising above negativity. According to Rogers, “You can be whoever and whatever you choose to be. Sometimes we have to encourage and motivate ourselves. There are no limits to success and it is not measured by wealth but your character and what you have to offer the world.”
An in-demand actress who left Hollywood to raise her daughter who
is now attending college, Rogers believes in empowering and motivating youth and is committed to encouraging people to change their lives for the better-– regardless of their past. Rogers recently made a comeback to the Hollywood scene after a 20-year hiatus from the industry and landed a leading role in 4 Heart Productions’ short film, Beyond Merritt, the true story of Lynda Merritt, a drug-addicted single mom who finds herself in the grips of drug addiction, poverty, loss, and despair. The film’s message is that there is hope in spite of life’s tragedies, and is set for release in Spring.
