A Take on My Character Interview ~ "Meet SIBERIA TONKA"~ The African Immigrant in Of Sentimental Value, the Novel and Movie by Princess Fumi Hancock

Character Name. I am a Twenty-something year old African Immigrant, who storms America with a dream of becoming the greatest writer that ever lived! I am bold, tough, sometimes sassy and look nothing like any Hollywood star. My mother always told me how unique and priceless I am. I believe her! But lately, with all of the drama happening around me; getting hit by a car, almost getting kicked out by my landlord, I am beginning to wonder if my dream of becoming the most successful bestselling author will ever happen! To top it all, I have a secret I must protect at all cost…
If you can add a dreamcast pic of the character that would be awesome
Look no further! My name is Aleta Myles…Fans in the theater world call me “L’Oprah” because of a popular skit I did in in Nashville, TN. Now, that I have jumped out of the pages of, Of Sentimental Value, into a movie screen… my dream is finally happening, thanks to the Princess of Suburbia who came my way. The Princess of Suburbia you asked? Then check us both out:; the novel: Oh by the way, did I tell you that the Princess of Suburbia is my idol. See why?
  This is “Me~ Aleta Myles as “Siberia Tonka” (Center) in one of my scenes with my nosy Hispanic neighbors, Jessica Garza as “Jessica” (L) and Rachel Rodgers as “Josie” . Here I go again … with trailing me…
Oh by the way, part of the cast include Malik Yoba, New York Undercover and Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married?, Tommy “Tiny” Lister, Bruce Willis counterpart in the 5th Element, Deebo on Friday.

Describe yourself what is your worst and best quality?
Worst ~ I am sometimes just hot headed and snaps at people even hen they are trying to help me. Ask Jessica my nosy neighbor. This is just my way of showing my frustration and will not hesitate to tell you off in a minute. Sadly, when love came my way in an unusual package ( Jake ),  I could not recognize it. However, once I cooled off, the only honk I saw in my rear view mirror was a forbidden fruit (Alan), a sexy, brash, multimillionaire art collector. 
Best~ I am resilient. Life kicks me down but somehow I keep jumping back up again… That must be the African bold and determined nature… Or not?
What is the one thing you wish other people knew about you?
Oh wow! I have a secret but I can’t share it now for fear that it may affect how people view me. My fear is that once the secret comes out, the debonair Alan will not look my ay. Better yet, Jake who continues to profess his love for me will run the opposite way and I will find myself alone yet again. So, I will leave you to figure the secret out:

What are you most afraid of?
I am so afraid that with the entire problem it’s caused me to travel out to America to live my dream; that I will have nothing to show for it! I fear having to go back to Africa with a trail of failure behind me. 
What do you want more than anything?
For most part of my adult years, I have followed the Princess of Suburbia® career as a bestselling author and an African Oscar award winning screenwriter and Indiefest film merit award winner, I will give anything to be just like her. I want to be a bestselling author. I want to see my name blasted across the New York Times, USA Today. I want to be on national news media… be a world sensation. Is this too much to ask the creator of heaven and earth?
What is your relationship status?
I need much help in this area but I must focus now on finding the family artifact I mistaken pawned off! I have to stop the spiraling chaos surrounding my dying sister, Naiya who is in Africa and me! But if you are curious, I have two love interests, Alan the wealthy, dark chocolaty (with a tucked away female baggage) and the simple vanilla, soft-spoken Jake.


       “Jake” played by Richard Neal           “Alan” played by Malik Yoba
What’s a gal gotta do. Umph!
How would you describe your sense of fashion?
Oh boy! I am afraid I may need help in that area. Josie and Jessica always remind me of that, particularly when Jessica launches out to grab my “tightly wrapped” scarf.  I love my African roots, so no matter where I am, no matter what I am doing, I always make sure that there is a hint of African on me.
How much of a rebel are you?
If you ask Jake, he will tell you I am very stubborn because I am giving him a whole lot of headache with pursuing me for a date. If you asked Jessica my neighbor, she still hasn’t figured me out. Sometimes I agree with what she says but most times, we argue! Josie her sister is just flat out indifferent. So, you ask if I am much of a rebel? It depends on the cause I am fighting for. Right now, I am fighting for my own sanity, fighting to ensure that the family artifact is returned back to the rightful owner in Africa and I am doing everything I can to ensure that.
What do you considered to be your greatest achievement?
Back in Africa, I won a writing contest! Because of that contest, I was given a partial scholarship to pursue my graduate studies in writing. Hence, this is my reason for being in America. More importantly, I was the very first to win such honor in my village. So you know understand why I cannot fail! I cannot go back to African with nothing in my hands. I have to do whatever it takes to make it as a writer, if it kills me!
What is your idea of happiness?
My idea of happiness is being content with where we are regardless; being at peace with the universe; appreciating all God’s creation and just learning to live life to its’ fullest. Ouch! I believe I am speaking to myself right now as I have not been content sine the family artifact got missing.
What is your current state of mind?
At this time, when my sister’s life is hanging in the balance, the mystery woman who keeps tormenting me in my dreams… I am not happy right now and I don’t think I will be until the family artifact~ the stone is found and returned to Africa.
What is your most treasured possession?
The camera I won at y writing contest. It has come in very handy here in America.
What is your most marked characteristic?
My hair… My head. I won’t say anything beyond that.
What is it that you, most dislike?
People bugging me on the same issue sets me off. Say it once, and we are done as I heard you the firs time around.
Which living person do you, most despise?
Alan’s “live in girlfriend!” She thinks she owns Alan and she has the right to talk to people any kind of way.
What is your greatest regret?
That I was so short of money that I had to pawn things off.
What is the quality you most like in a man?
Unnnn…. Someone who is edgy yet soft spoken. He is kind hearted yet firm when handling situation.
What is the quality you most like in a woman?
Who is your favorite hero in fiction?
Thor~ He is a straight guy and does thing with a sense of honor and purpose. So do I.
Which living person do you most admire?
Jessica, once I figured out that she was not being nosy, just really being a true friend.
If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
“My secret” and I still can’t share it. You will have to meet up with me in the novel world to find out. That is what I would love to change.
What is your motto?
Live with passion, humility and respect for others. Value your culture ad traditions because they are part of your DNA.

Of Sentimental Value written & Execuitive Produced by Bestselling Author, FUMI HANCOCK Wins Dove Foundation "Family Approved" Seal

Dove Family-Approved
Recommended for
ages 12 and over




Dove Worldview:
"Of Sentimental Value" does a super job demonstrating the worth of every individual who lives on this planet. The film is unique in that it opens with actors in the movie sharing painful moments of their past, including abuse and health issues, and how they moved forward to find their "worth" as people of value. One actress tells of her manic depression and suicidal thoughts, but how she pushed through after hearing the voice of God speaking to her spirit, telling her she had a purpose and a reason to live.
Other wonderful examples are featured in the film, including actor Richard Neal explaining that he used to weigh 426 pounds and that his father kicked his mother's legs with his steel-toed boots. His step dad abused him, telling him he was fat, stupid, and worthless, and he once placed a pistol in his mouth. Instead of ending his life, he went on to lose 242 pounds in 18 months, became an actor, and now says he realizes he is "priceless." Aleta Myles, who plays Siberia in the movie, talks about losing her hair due to a health problem but how she now has confidence. The story focuses on Siberia, who has moved from Africa to America and plans to become a writer. She is hit by a car (is unhurt), has her car re-possessed and can't pay her rent. She also receives troubling news from her homeland. However, she perseveres and stays encouraged by watching The Princess of Suburbia on her computer. The Princess preaches faith to those who listen. In the end, amazing things happen to Siberia. There is a plot-line involving a stone that has been stolen, a stone Siberia believes must be returned to Africa in order for good things to be restored. The themes of perseverance and faith are to be commended. We are awarding our Dove Family-Approved Seal for ages twelve plus to "Of Sentimental Value." This film has many inspiring moments! 

Dear Distributor/Producer,
Congratulations! Of Sentimental Value (The Movie) has won approval by The Dove Foundation Review Board. This means the Foundation believes that the content expressed makes for the kind of entertainment family members can enjoy together with confidence. The Dove Family Approved Seal is awarded to movies, DVDs, made for TV movies and specials, books and other entertainment products that portray and encourage positive values.

My Wisdom of Nugget for TODAY:
May I encourage someone today with my life story? "One man's poison; is another man's medicine!" Have you ever been in a situation where it didn't matter what you did... how hard you tried, those who are expected to lift you up and see the greatness in you... do exactly the opposite or better yet pretend they don't know what their assignment is for the season where it concerns you? Well... read this...#beinspired, #bemotivated, #beempowered!

Lesson I have learn't with my movie, Of Sentimental Value~God's favor does not always lie in perfection! It almost never align with what mans' eye can see. If we hear spiritually, then we will know when he is moving. During post production of this movie, I was moved to do something which was not necessarily the FILM standards... I brought up my actors/actresses and allowed them to shine over the main story... IT PAID OFF! In life, you need to allow your proteges to shine! As they shine, you shine too. What may not be visible to you is visible to GOD and God honors your effort~

The Princess of Suburbia, Princess Fumi Hancock.

                                                 Princess Fumi S. Hancock, Ph.D.

Several weeks ago, I reached out to my online family as my movie, Of Sentimental Value and myself were nominated for the Nollywood & Africans Films Critics Association (NAFCA) ~African Oscar Peoples' Choice Award in the following categories:

                      * Favorite Screenwriter    * Favorite Trailer         *Favorite Original Score

Several few days ago,  I was announced as the winner! Such an exciting time and I get to share it with you all! Thanks to all who kept the faith with me and kept voting. I couldn't have done it without you all. The journey to writing bestselling books and making award winning movies have not been easy. There were times I felt like throwing in the towel., particularly when you get rejection letters from an onslaught of agents, producers you name it ~ Been there done that and now wrote two bestselling books about it.
