If you didn’t know @bradvenable, you were missing out. He was kind to every single person he knew. I don’t think he gave himself the credit he deserved, but he was always there to be supportive of his colleagues, no matter what stage they were at in their career.— Erica Mendez (@tsunderica) January 8, 2021
🕯️ Brad and I took a workshop and were given a script that called for Southern accents. I told Brad I can’t do a Southern accent, but he encouraged me so I tried anyway.— Faye Mata 💙 (@FayeMata) January 8, 2021
Please see how he supports me, instills confidence in me over time, raises a high5. I love @BradVenable. pic.twitter.com/P9pTfAgwIX
