The coming of age storyline has been often used in Hollywood for the big screen. It’s one that most people can relate to. The journey from childhood to adulthood is universal. However, unlike the characters on the movie screen most people’s journeys are pretty unremarkable and do not include a grand adventure. As exciting as a coming of age story might seem in the movies, in real life it’s more like an ode to the classic story of dreams deferred. Now if movies don’t really portray reality how does an actress who has one foot in La La land and one foot in reality handle her journey? Quite well if that actress is Keke Palmer. Keke Palmer has seemingly crossed the bridge from cute child star to confident actress unscathed. Although Keke has been a working actress since she was 11-years-old and is now 20-years-old, she did not succumb to the pitfalls of a very adult industry.
