Today we’d like to introduce you to Evelyn LeTeshia.
Hi Evelyn, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Today, I am a full-time entertainer and freelancer! I’m an actress, model, singer/songwriter, screenwriter, director, hostess, content creator, and I freelance on production crews as an assistant director, stage manager, script supervisor, boom operator, set decorator, and much much more! This journey, however, did not come without a lot of twists and turns.
My background is in nursing, and in the spring of 2014, I obtained my Master’s in nursing as a Nurse Practitioner.
Prior to that, I married my long-time friend and high school sweetheart in 2012, however, the relationship came to an end when I filed for divorce in the fall of 2014. During that same fall, tragedy struct in the loss of my grandmother–my namesake.
Going through a close, familial loss and divorce at the same time is not for the faint of heart! It was very much life-altering, and my heart shattered. To will, one’s self from rock bottom to keep persevering is a type of strength I still cannot name but am very fortunate to have had!
With the conclusion of my divorce in January 2015, I initially felt lost. There were all these plans, dreams, and goals that I had made with this other person for almost 9 years of my life, and now it was just… GONE, but when I stopped focusing on what was lost and instead focused on what I stood to gain, I decided to go after the entertainment career I had always dreamt of since childhood!
As much as I loved nursing, it was a safe and secure career coming from a small, rural hometown, yet it was NEVER my first love! With that, I started networking and putting in the work to become who I am today!
Since 2015, I have released a musical EP, released music videos, done multiple stages plays including musicals, been on television 4 times to date, done two theatrical tours, starred in a web series, and have worked on multiple production crews including one for a series currently streaming on Tubi!
In January 2022, my nursing and entertainment careers finally came to a head; something that I knew deep down would eventually happen one day, and I made the conscious decision to leave my nursing occupation and dedicate myself to entertainment full-time.
It was one of the best decisions of my life! Door after door keeps opening bringing in opportunities beyond what I ever imagined, and although I’ve been on this journey since 2015, I do not see it slowing down any time soon!
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I’ve always been the type of person who bounces back and never stays down too long, so while there have definitely been struggles along the way, I have been able to navigate this business quite well!
The struggles and bumpiness of the road definitely started to decrease once I learned how to appropriate network, what training I needed, and to allow myself a level of grace and vulnerability to ask for AND accept help when needed.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
In the words of Jay Z, “I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man.” Evelyn LeTeshia LLC is my full-service freelancing business. I specialize in bringing both my own and others’ project visions to life!
What sets me apart is that I bring a level of focus and attention to detail to all that I do as well as giving well over 100% in everything that I do! This ensures a clean, well-put-together, final product that clients can be proud of.
If you need an actress to breathe air into your project, a production crew member to help you meet important deadlines, a singer/songwriter to create a hook unique to your sound, a model to be your brand ambassador, and soooooo much more, Evelyn LeTeshia LLC is your “one-stop-shop!”
My professional integrity and reputation are well-known to many and are what I’m most proud of, and because of this, I continue to receive new opportunities just by word of mouth from people I have never even met before!
So, before we go, how can our readers or others connect or collaborate with you? How can they support you?
I am constantly connecting with other industry people via social media, festivals, corporate events, conventions, and on-set. The easiest way for others to support me is to simply subscribe, like, comment, and share the content I create.
For those who are interested in helping me secure the necessary training and equipment, I need to consistently grow in my craft and upgrade my content creation output such as acting classes, vocal lessons, lights, cameras, soundboards, microphones, and backdrops, etc.
Monetary and/or physical equipment donations can be coordinated by emailing me directly at EvelynLeTeshia@gmail.com.
