Imani Hakim, who played the smart-mouthed daughter, little Tonya Rock, in the critically acclaimed hilarious television series “Everybody Hates Chris,” is now a gorgeous young lady and a successful woman.

Hakim, now 23, was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and by the age of seven, she had already developed a strong passion for acting. She played the bratty sister in the American period sitcom that was based on comedian Chris Rock’s troubled teenage experiences during the 1980s.

“I decided that I wanted to be an actress at the age of 7. This is something I’ve always known,” says Hakim.

“I owe my success to my two families. If my father hadn’t been willing to make sacrifices for me, I would have never won the role on ‘Everybody Hates Chris’. I like working with my television family, too. We have a lot of love for each other.”

“When people say, ‘If you could do anything else, what would you do?’ I would be an actress. That’s something that I would do—I can’t see myself doing anything else.”

“I just would like to be challenged. I want to push myself to the limit, and constantly challenge myself and grow as an artist. That’s where I want to go. Explore different things, different characters, in film, and just everything!”
