We had the good fortune of connecting with Sulondia “Sue-Ham” Hammond and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sulondia “Sue-Ham”, what are you inspired by?
I am inspired by others’ success. My children and grandson inspire me to BE more, DO more, and HAVE more. I love pushing the limits, accomplishing more than initially anticipated. My team inspires me. I love trying to reach my fullest potential before transitioning from this life. My community inspires me to go harder to ensure we receive the things we need. I am inspired by my parents, family, and my ancestors who have endured much worse than me, but yet, in still found a way to have joy, laughter, rich lives, and great experiences!
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.
I am writer…. just didn’t realize it till later in late, My dream was to be an actor, but unfortunately, in rural America, acting gigs are few and far in between. I have been writing since I was a kid, but I never thought I was good at it. In 2006, because acting gigs were nonexistent in my area, I decided to write a stage play and act in it. That was all she wrote, so to speak. I never looked back. I have been writing short films, skits, and stage plays ever since and the kicker is, I get to produce them and give others a platform to showcase their skills.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Definitely, I’d take them to The Office Bar & Lounge in Hemingway, SC, for good music, good people, good drinks, good food, and good service! I’d also try to ensure I booked them around a time Sue-Ham Entertainment has a stage play debuting. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Major shout out to my parents, Betty & James Hammond. They instilled valuable principles like, manners will take you further than money, laughter is good for the soul, family & God are everything, and never stop learning or executing in excellence! Shout out to my sister, Shaneka Hammond Brown. Watching her make moves and produce hair shows in convention centers, do a complete rehab on a 9000 sqft building and turn it into a Cosmetology, Esthetics, and Nail school plus salon is beyond impressive. My children have inspired me from the onset. Everything I do, is to ensure they are in a better place. They sacrificed with me and for me and for that I have to win. My heart beats for Destiny, Kelvin Jr., and Jackson! Last, but not least, my best friend and love of my life, Maurice, has been with me through thick and thin. More often than not, investing his last dime into my brand, my pursuits, my dreams. At times, he believed in me moreso than I did myself. His strength, wisdom, creativity, and partnership is unmatched. I totally would not be where I am today without God, my parents, siblings, friends, and supporters of the Sue-Ham brand. I am eternally grateful for every person who has sowed into my life.
