                                 ABOUT RENEE ASHLEY BAKER….

         Dear New Readers:  I thought you’d like to know one “fact” about me –which is–I have never, never “been ignored”.    At the age of 7 I was picked/selected to perform “solos” on stage (in front of an audience and under a spotlight).  In grade school I was picked/selected to “student government”, to “honor guard”, to State “square dancing” competitions, and to “drama club”.   In college, I was “invited” to pledge to a “rich girl sorority” (However  I  declined to concentrate on “drama/acting classes”).  And now–I will “Executive Produce” my first motion picture for worldwide theatrical release (NO tv shows– just this motion picture only. And, No to NBC/Universal and No to Warner Bros.  I’m with Disney motion picture distribution–exclusively).   I don’t know the meaning of the word “ignore”–so look out!  My life’s motto (because I’m from St. Louis Missouri)  has always been: “I’ll SHOW YOU BETTER THAN I CAN TELL YOU….”. 

                ABOUT RENEE ASHLEY BAKER ( THE BLOG )
