Good Morning Ladies and Gents! I wish y’all a Happy Hump Day! And I hope the new site structure and appearance are to your liking haha. For those of you following us on Instagram, check out our new samples coming out later this March. As for Today, you know what time it is. Its time for our Black Sheep of the Month. This month we celebrate a badass woman that leaves nothing left to be expected. So, here you have it, Black Sheep of the Month, Michelle Rodriguez.
This Friendly Neighborhood Badass is a Black Sheep like you won’t believe! Here’s How!
Like most of us, Ms. Rodriguez had a pretty normal upbringing. However, unlike many, Michelle never settled for anything less than what was best for her. Born to Carmen and Rafael Rodriguez, in San Antonio Texas, she exhibited early on a strong, distinct nature synonymous to many Black Sheep before her. Like many Army brats, she moved around with her 10 siblings, from the Dominican Republic to Puerto Rico and finally settling down in Jersey.
Surprisingly enough, it seems that can-do rebellious spirit had always been a part of Ms. Rodriguez. By the time she dropped out of high school to earn her GED, she had already been expelled from 5 schools.
Let me be clear, we’re not condoning recklessness and poor behavior, but what we are alluring to is standing up for what is right and what you believe in if it means expulsion. Following her GED award, she went on to Business school only to professionally bow out when the fateful chance arose to act. As destiny would have it, she came across an open casting call ad where she beat out 350 other applicants to star in critically acclaimed film, Girlfight. This brought her upfront and center in Hollywood. Her many awards and accolades landed her even bigger roles such as Letty in the Fast & the Furious series and Rain in Resident Evil.
It’s obvious, Black Sheep of the Month, Michelle Rodriguez, is a dynamo Black Sheep waiting to show the world that her past was nothing more than steppingstones to her future.
Let’s be honest though, this Big Sister, is not afraid to tell it how it is. To make her even more of a badass, her hobbies include tactical shooting, cars, and skydiving. As she puts it, “Maybe by me opening my big fat mouth like I usually do and stepping up and owning who I am, maybe it might inspire somebody else to do the same.” As her fellow Black Sheep, I can respect those with strong personalities. Each and every one of us have our own ways and paths. Some Black Sheep want to single highhandedly take an armada on. Certain Black Sheep like to find their path with the help of others. Lastly, other Black Sheep, like to meticulously act only when needed.
