Filmmaker Bio:
Shayla Racquel is the quintessential creative – born and raised in South Carolina but currently living in the city of Washington, DC. She believes she gained her creative and entrepreneurial spirit from her grandparents Joseph & Evelyn Thompson, both owning thriving Black businesses in Columbia, SC. Diagnosed with Sickle Cell Disease at birth and having a stroke at the young age of 12, her childhood battle with the disease is what brought her closer to the art of storytelling and the love of filmmaking.
