Starstruck: My run-in with "Hakeem" from Empire!

Cool story alert! I am an intern at a local TV news station in New Orleans, and this past Friday, I walk into work, and long and behold, it is Yazz, who plays "Hakeem" on the hit TV show "Empire!" The entire incident was kind of a whirlwind because everything happened so quickly, and I was in shock that he was standing there in the flesh! So, I gained the courage and tried to act somewhat professional LOL. I was like, "Hey Yaz! I'm Sydney, one of the interns here at the station (shakes his hand). I'm a huge fan of yours and keep doing your thing." After that, I started to walk away, but then I paused and asked him, "Can I get a picture with you?" He said YES, and I was so excited and nervous that it was hard for me to unlock my phone, BUT the picture was eventually taken!
