“I’m Sergia Starr, a lover and student of acting, writing, directing, theater, dance and art!
My mission is to help young adults struggling with abusive relationships, peer pressure and uncertainty in their direction.
I was there and I was once overwhelmed with negative influences. I sorted through it all and created a one-woman show designed to teach young people that they have a life full of choices and endless possibilities!
My goal is to equip and motivate and provide empowerment with tools and strategies to achieve their greatness.
Thank you for coming to me, and let’s see how we can work together to help young lives!”

Amsterdam News, Ron Scott wrote:“…Her semi-autobiographical role was the epitome of acting-an instant Tony-worthy performance."
"The students know these people; they are their sisters, mothers, brothers, etc. This play is both a warning and a message of hope."

"Ms. Perez's story is brave, bold, highly accessible and filled with brilliant insight without being pedantic. During our performance, everyone in the audience, regardless of age, color, creed or socio-economics connected with her characters on a very profound level. While she may not have cried, we all did; and subsequently, walked out of the auditorium richer for having witness her tale.

"I have realized a person has to
CHOOSE success for himself or herself.
I wish we all would choose to live in our
GREATNESS. I want my son to LIVE IN
HIS GREATNESS. I want YOU, dear
reader, to LIVE IN YOUR
GREATNESS. But I realize this. That
some will read this book and still choose
to make wrong choices. Simply because
we may be lacking vision, and guidance,
or because we are hard headed and
stubborn to a fault. I used to be like
