We had the good fortune of connecting with Huncho Henderson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Huncho, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I think as human beings when it comes to success and making our dreams come true, we always have this thought process of “ WHAT IF I FAIL” we all experience that. I always look at life as if i should at least try and see what the outcome will be. When it comes to your dreams and goals you have nuthin to lose by going after it. But that small risk you take could help you gain so much. As far as risk for me. I recently auditioned for a movie. At first i wasn’t going to do it. But i took the risk and did it. And i got the movie role. So it’s just that foot forward you decide to take, and the progression and success will follow.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am an actor. I currently have upcoming movies i’m in that i can’t really speak about yet. But i’m super excited. I consider myself a quick thinker and a good listener. I think those two things are very important in the entertainment industry i’m in. As far as overcoming obstacles. We all overcome things everyday. It’s a decision you make to keep going. Don’t give up. To stay motivated and have tunnel vision. That’s the thought process i have everyday. As far as what i want the world to know about me. I would say that i’m going to be consistent with my ambition and goals. That i plan on helping others accomplish their goals as well along the way.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Los Angeles is an amazing city. I’m very proud to say i grew up here. As far as food i would take them for a good breakfast at MET HER AT A BAR. There food is really good. Dulans Soul Food is good as well. I really like the Aquarium it’s so interesting to me, so definitely taking them there. Also the Getty Museum would be on the list as well.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Yea of course. My mother is my biggest inspiration. She is one of the strongest people i know. Always letting me know i can be anything i want. My mother is relentless when it comes to making things happen. You tell her no. She will find a way to make it happen. I get my strength, my focus and kind heart from her as well.
