Terri J. Vaughn has entertained us on television for eight seasons as a series regular. First, she stole America’s heart with her lovable portrayal of Lovita Alizay Jenkins on the WB’s “The Steve Harvey Show.” After that, Vaughn made her way to UPN’s “All of Us.” Currently, she is a cast member currently on the hit TBS television sit-com “Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns.” Her film credits include "Three Can Play That Game," "Tyler Perry's Daddy's Little Girls," "Redrum," and "Angels Can't Help But Laugh." Vaughn has been honored with three Image Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress, a nomination for a 2005 BET Comedy Award, and also nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her work on “Soulfood.”
But, before Vaughn ever had her first audition, she was growing up in a housing project in San Francisco’s Hunter’s Point district. Today, she is determined to create positive, inspirational experiences for other young women growing up in the projects. Out of her desire to give back to her community, in 1997, Vaughn started TAKE WINGS FOUNDATION.
