Christina Bright or as her instagram and facebook followers know her as Chris Miss has been taking the internet by storm lately, with her posts going viral quite frequently.

Bright has recently sparked an internet buzz as she was hand picked out of thousands at an open casting call to be an extra in Spike Lee’s upcoming Netflix series “She’s Gotta Have It”. But before we dive head first into how she landed her acting role lets learn about exactly who Christina Bright is.
“…I’m a Newark-based mother and creative entrepreneur. I represent the idea that anything you desire you can create in your life. I talk about manifestation a lot but I also take people along every step of the way. I know that the highs and lows are equally important and I think it’s important that I showcase that.”
Bright said her brand “Everyday is Chris Miss” was intended to represent self love and extending love to others, daily as if you’re celebrating the Christmas holiday. But instead of material gifts you’re giving gifts of love, advice, and etc.
“Everyday Is ChrisMiss” started as a movement centered on self-love and loving others. I wanted to spread the idea that we should treat people like it’s “Chris Miss” everyday. Its not about material gifts, but the gift of sharing experience, advice, nice gestures, and testimonies. “
Her brand was and still is being built off of her actual life experiences. Bright says building her brand has proved important while trying to reach her goals. Bright also said while building her brand she makes it a point to network and collaborate with the local Newark creatives, since they’re not always appreciated in the city.
