We are the new breed rising
I first noticed Rashida Jones on "I Love You, Man" a comedy (movie) about a clingy fiancée that branches out and finds a new friend.
She later went on to gain other roles and starred in "Cop Out" with Tracy Morgan and Bruce Willis. She is most known for her role in "Parks and Recreation".
I thought to myself Rashida is an Arabic name and Jones? I wonder what her origin is, if she was mixed or something. I googled her and what did I find? Her father is none other than THE Quincy Jones!
In addition to being an actress she is also a vocalist, producer and director.
She speaks English and French.

"Growing up is never easy to do. Some days you feel happy and carefree, and others you feel sad. Some days you feel confident and self-assured, and other days you feel unsure. Life can seem upside down, because you're changing so quickly, but your life is made up of what you believe about yourself. Believe in your ability to succeed, and you will. Believe in your ability to meet every difficult challenge, and you will. Believe in your ability to give and receive love, and you will. Believe in yourself. You are a wonderful, unique person who is beginning to find out what the world is about and searching your place in it. Have patience with yourself and love yourself. Growing up isn't easy, but you'll make it." - Donna Levine #donnalevine#life#growth#growingpains
