The illustrious actress shows us how, with a little self-love and faith, anything is possible.


SHEEN Magazine pays homage to “The Illustrious Woman” by recognizing the distinguished qualities found in womanhood. The Ultimate Beauty Guide proudly salutes those individuals who work persistently to be the best teachers, thinkers, and leaders making a difference in their communities and the world, helping every person to comprehend their beauty, inside and out, while promoting the message that all women have unique gifts and attributes that make them illustrious.

What better way to celebrate the illustrious woman than with the bonafide actress Meagan Good. Known for her highly acclaimed success as an actress and creative visionary, Meagan Good is a living testament of what it means to be “refined by the fire.” In her introspective interview, the glamorous cover girl shares her story on how she answered the call to be an actress and why she hopes to inspire a generation.

 “In that prayer I realized that acting was something I needed to be doing, but that it was bigger than me and wasn’t really about me. Yes, I love what I do…but I think it’s more about using the craft to put something out into the world to hopefully uplift a generation, to inspire young women.” – Meagan Good
