Barret Helms wanted to be America’s first Black President, but when Obama beat him to it, he had an existential crisis and dropped out of college. He became a fashion model for Abercrombie, Glamour, and Cosmo; worked as an actor in projects including Lee Daniels’ Precious; and eventually went back to school to become an Ivy League graduate, USC George Lucas Scholar, and Annenberg Fellow. Having never quite given up social justice, Barret currently serves as Inclusion & Equity Coordinator at the Writers Guild of America, West. He enjoys writing about Black leaders of all types.
