Yolanda's story comes from a place of pain, strength, and courage. While suffering from a spell of depression, she reached for professional assistance through her family physician. When drugs did not help, Yolanda sought from deep within her spiritual faith and God.
The Gift - The answer came in the form of a dream from what she considers, a gift from the universe. She immediately jotted down the information of what would later become the perfect movie script. With the support of her family, she began to shop around, sharing her work with entertainment agencies and people within the industry.
The Opportunity - After a couple of years of waiting and posting her work on various sites, a representative of Kinetic Films responded after seeing the inspiring project on The Black List Website. Experienced movie producer, writer, and director, Mehal Shah, thought the idea was fresh, original and could be his next great project.
The Dream Becomes Reality- The Baking Club Chronicles: Nana’s Bammy Sweets, would later become Nana’s Secret Recipe; a warm comedy with a little drama about middle-aged divas that are caught up in financial distress and used their local town bakery to sell cannabis for profit. Their lives are stressed and complicated for the worst. Each character comes from her personal experience and the lives of close individuals that she knows personally.
The Rising Star - Mrs. Avery has continued to build a brand name complete with products and services, further adding to a rising empire. Yolanda also has other scripts and works currently in negotiation.
Closing Remarks- This most certainly is a fantastic feel-good story, that should serve as divine inspiration for all of her fans and supporters. "Look deep within yourself, find what it is that you love and let it be therapy for your soul” – Yolanda Avery. It has once been said that if you do what you truly love, you will never work a day in your life. Get started, the world is waiting!
