Cast Spotlight: Le’Erica Richards

by Anna Hartman on April 14, 2017

Women like Le’Erica Richards are rare. She’s an Air Force veteran, writer, inspiration architect, and mother of three. She maintains a positive outlook on life, that I admire more than I can put into words. Her piece will change you and your core beliefs.


What is your name?
Le’Erica Richards (Ms Le’Erica)

Where do you write, blog, are published?
I’m completing a book about my life–the raw, unapologetic truth about me. It is due to release in June 2017. I also write on my Facebook Blog Page as well as on The Making of a Woman.

How did you find LTYM?
I have three friends who have been in the cast of LTYM: Charleston. I took a chance when I saw the auditions advertised. I was scared because it was out of my comfort zone; I actually almost cancelled the day of my audition. It’s been a challenging but amazing experience.

What do you wish most for your children?
My wish for all the children in my life is that they live a life that is authentic to who they are. I pray that they find love, fulfill their heart’s’ desires and when life gives them an unexpected twist, they hold their heads high and meet each challenge as their own hero.

What does motherhood mean to you?
Motherhood to me is the biggest act of selflessness I can ever give. To be a mother, I lent by body, and gave my heart, soul, and life to three people (my children) without any guarantees. No guarantee that it will be easy, no guarantee that it will be enjoyable, or painless, there is no monetary gain. We love these little people and pray we don’t mess them up. I’ve said before, to me, motherhood is the most gut wrenching, joyous, anxiety-filled rollercoaster ride that I never want to get off of.

Tell us 2 fun facts about yourself.
1. So, I have a tendency to break out in spontaneous song and dance. . . . Like a one-woman flash mob. The smell of coffee makes me dance.
2. I have a love for religious studies and documentaries. I’m intrigued by the thought processes that cause us to believe in a higher power, whatever it may be. I love to know things, about things I’ll never do or facts I’ll never use, so I was once called KIA (Know It All) endearingly by my friends.
