From Birmingham to Hollywood – An Inspiring Journey of Purpose, Production, and Philanthropy

Adel Roy is a multifaceted leader, accomplished author, doctoral candidate in Business Administration from Walden University, wife, mother, media expert, producer, and business owner. Originally from Birmingham, England, and ventured to New York almost four decades ago. It wasn’t an easy transition for the UK native, but she understood her life’s calling and the magnitude of responsibility. After nearly a decade in New York, she developed a keen sense of understanding her purpose. Adel Roy was at the beginning of her journey as an author.The inspiration for her first book, “Pursuit of Purpose,” was a collaboration between her and her husband. It started with conversations with her husband and ended with a mentor who assisted Adel in completing her first book. Since publishing “Pursuit of Purpose,” it has been revised several times. Adel recently changed the title from “Pursuit of Purpose” to “Establish- A Mission of Self Discovery.” The new title was inspired and cohesive with the biblical scripture 1 Peter 5:10. This book is a biopic of her journey through personal challenges, self-discovery, and connection with God. She then decided to write a second self-published book, “Making the Connector-Understanding the Power of Connections in Finding Your Purpose,” highlighting the cliché of being in the right place at the right time.

From book to TV, Adel expanded her “Pursuit of Purpose” book from paper to film. She wrote and produced her first documentary, “Pursuing Purpose,” aired on the local public television station in Lansing, Michigan. Adel Roy took it a step further and investigated training courses on creating quality programming that could be aired on television. She continued to push “Pursuit of Purpose” locally and decided the best way to learn television and production was to relocate to Los Angeles, California. It wasn’t the most effortless journey, but it opened Adel to great business opportunities, networking groups, and professional connections that helped expand her business. Adel describes the a-ha moment as when she met Hollywood Correspondent/Branding Expert Antoinette Love Ransom. This is a connection Adel would consider a “Making the Connector” moment she mentions in her second book. There are specific reasons why people come into your life. This brief connection became a strategic mentorship in helping Mrs. Roy develop her business as a producer. Antoinette and her team were able to help launch and establish Adel Media Productions.

Adel Media Productions aims to inspire and help create resources and services for upcoming and rising talent. Adel also wants to use her production company to assist with small productions or projects that will help support and embrace diversity through entertainment. Adel Media Productions strives to create a community of like-minded individuals committed to making a difference and helping others develop their purpose. Adel is growing her business panels that will be aired on Roku TV.

Some life-altering occurrences in Adel’s past created the narrative of who she is moving forward. Her purpose was clear: from being a leader to saving a child’s life. It was time to start her own nonprofit 501(c)(3) last year called “By Affinity Inc.”. Her goal with By Affinity, Inc. is to create opportunities for underprivileged kids with creative skills who need resources to help them flourish. A great platform that will help participants gain employment or the skills to become self-employed. This is a unique opportunity to “make the connector” to a mentor who could help utilize their skills to gain employment. Touching one person, even in the most minor efforts, can significantly impact their life. Consider where you are in the matrix of life. Are you fulfilling your calling that can bring about change in the world? The goal is to “be the change you would like to see.” It might start with taking more risks, but as Adel would put it, “high risk-high reward.” We all have a purpose, and embracing our calling is why we’re here.
