Keeya King discusses growing up in poverty to becoming a privileged actress.

Growing from a young girl studying the art of acting at local studios – into a passionate woman starring as Violet Hansen in the Syfy hit series Van Helsing, Keeya King has forged her way into the acting world with an unparalleled aura of beauty.

She shares with SHEEN Magazine a little on her story, how she stays beautiful inside and out, and her new role on Netflix’s Madame C.J. Walker.
