Sullen, a humble person owes her success to, “The master up above,” Sullen said. “God is in control of our lives. He knows. He sees all. He knows all and whatever he wants to happen, he will allow to happen. I’m his servant. I provide services through him. I walk out on faith, and whatever he leads me to do, I’ll do.”

The film is set to be completed this summer.
