She has gone from reporting on movies to making them, debuting as Executive Producer on Lust and Envy, A Seven Deadly Sins Story based on the book series by Victoria Christopher Murray.
“This story Lust is about those things you know you should not have but you’re drawn to it cause of some type of passion,” Robinson said.
Also, the story of Envy is about a woman’s long-lost sister who will stop at nothing to have her perfect life.
Robinson may reside in LA, but she’s giving back to her Detroit community by empowering young women through her S.H.A.U.N foundation for girls, something she’s most proud of.READ MORE: Tax Refund Delays Likely To Grow As Filing Deadline Nears
“We support small non-profits that are doing work in 5 key areas of girls issues and those 5 key areas are represented by the acronym of my name, S is for STEAM, H is for Health, A is Arts, U is Unity and N is neighborhood,” Robinson said.
She works with several Detroit organizations such as Alternatives for Girls. Robinson says when you empower a girl, you can change the world, and her philanthropy comes from her grandmother and deep Detroit roots.
“If I show up and change one life, that is rewarding enough for me,” said Robinson.
Lust, A Seven Deadly Sins Story airs this Saturday, April 10, 8pm/7c and Envy, A Seven Deadly Sins Story airs Saturday, April 17 on the Lifetime Network.
