Have you seen #GirlsTrip yet?! Here's some #Goodness to surely make you smile. As she bursts into the spotlight with her breakout role in Girls Trip, it’s hard to picture @tiffanyhaddish as anything but a born comedy star. But her road to success has been a harrowing one. When Haddish was 9, her mom was in a car accident that left her with brain damage after her head crashed through the windshield. As the oldest of five siblings, “I was basically a 10-year-old mom,” Haddish told @PEOPLE last year. Two years later, she and her siblings were split up into foster homes.
She struggled to fit in at her new middle school. It wasn’t until a social worker pushed her to attend a comedy camp that she discovered her passion for performing.
Haddish spent a period of her life post-foster care homeless. During that time, she made a list of who she wanted to work with and where she wanted to be in the future. “I wrote that wish list, and I wrote that I wanted to work with Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith,” she says. She adds that she wanted to show the actress her homemade prom dress that was made “to look just like Jada Pinkett’s dress when her and Will Smith first hit the red carpet together.” Now, the actress, 37, is starring alongside Jada Pinkett Smith. Dreams do come true! #FosterCare #TiffanyHaddish #GoodNews #Goodness
