Joyful founded The Dream Big Foundation, which is dedicated to rewarding young women who are determined to accomplish their dreams. Joyful issued a challenge to five students from South Atlanta High School to write an essay about their dreams and the path to achieving those dreams. These inner city students are working hard to beat the odds and find a way to fund their college educations. The winner with the most compelling story was rewarded with a glamorous prom makeover produced by Joyful and the “BET Dream Team.” The first recipient of this exciting prom experience was Lauren Poe. She received hair, make-up and styling from members of the "Lets Stay Together" glam team. The result was a beautiful experience of a lifetime. Joyful created this foundation because in her words, “Once you stop dreaming, you stop living.”

For two and a half years she had an exciting time as a dancer for the NBA Milwaukee Bucks. She remains an avid fan and also loves the NFL’s Green Bay Packers.

After graduation, she moved to New York to pursue an acting career. Her first job was a recurring role on the hit Showtime series "Soul Food." While in New York, she co-starred in several independent features and Off-Broadway productions before relocating to Los Angeles. She began studying with acting coach Ivana Chubbuck who encouraged her to embrace her quirkiness and unique sense of humor. She had never thought of herself as a comedic actress and the results have been rewarding.
