We had the good fortune of connecting with Ja’min G. Walker and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ja’min G., how do you think about risk?
I think risk is important. I’m a firm believer in the saying no risk no reward. You don’t wanna miss out on any great opportunities by not taking a chance. You never know how it may can change your life.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My art is Acting. I’ve been Acting for 4 years now. What sets me apart from others is my drive and determination. I am a firm believer of what you put into your craft is what you get out of it. One of the things I am excited about is I play a pivotal role in a series called “Self”written by Samuel Johnson of Southern Thang Studios which will be airing on Amazon Prime in May. My journey has definitely not been easy. There were many trials and tribulations during my journey. There were times when I felt like giving up, but my determination and drive will not let me, Also I knew god didn’t bring me this far to give up on me now. One lesson I’ve learned during the way is as long as you stay persistent in what ever you do you will eventually see great results. The world will see a lot of me in these next months to come I have a lot of projects coming stay tuned!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I like to eat good food, so I would definitely take them to Copper Cove in Buckhead they have the best Lamb Chops in the city, also it’s a cool vibe. We would definitely have to do breakfast at Atlanta Breakfast Club they Breakfast Tacos and Peach Cobbler French Toast is on point. I would take them to the Westin 75 floors up they have a sky lounge and you can see the entire city the view is amazing. In Atlanta there is so much to see and do so our week would definitely be fun filled.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to give my shout out to Samuel Johnson and Keith Anderson of Southern Thang Studios. They casted me for their series “Self” and we have been working on different projects ever since. They gave me an opportunity to work alongside Grammy Award winning producer Zaytoven in a short movie video. There will be a lot of projects coming from us soon. They also have a Filming Studio which will be open soon in Conyers, Ga. I like to thank them making me a part of the team.
